Consumers is a good company to work for if you are not ambitious in your career. The criteria of upper management in promoting people is unclear and not based on merit. If you read their website, they tout diversity and the ease of moving around internally. So you are thinking you will advance as long as you perform. But after being there for many years, you later find that statement is reserved only for certain people. If you are not one of those you will find that you are being managed to fail and not to succeed. It does not matter how hard you work. If you do not qualify politically you either accept that you are not going anywhere or recognize it and find another job elsewhere where your efforts are rewarded.
Remember, this company supplies products that people need -electricity and gas. There is no need for innovation or critical thinking. There are many smart people working there but no need to rack their brains. So, if you want an 8-5 job, then have at it. Their diversity efforts are always politically motivated. Minorities that dominate are the ones that get promoted in order not to suffer political fall out. So, other employees are ignored.Minorities are hired to meet EEO quota with no intention to advance them.
Many people are still ingrained with the old culture. Don't expect that to change anytime soon since their management tolerates it.

Look elsewhere if you are a minority and want to advance in your career.
