Call Center Customer Service
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Davenport, IAMay 19, 2014
Typical day involves assisting customers by phone for eight hours. Limited freedom to move around. Management promotes based only on call statistics and doesn't encourage employee development. The position is advertised as entry level, but talented/educated employees often leave the company after struggling to move to a new position after several years of service. As with most call centers there is – more... high turnover. Overall not a bad place to work though. Hours are never reduced, pay is consistent with occasional overtime (salaried non-exempt) There is a year end bonus and raise based on personal and company performance. Department incentive program has grown so difficult to meet that only a select few see the benefit. At the corporate level, benefits continue to be reduced as the cost of living rises. – less

Productive, challenging
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Des Moines, IAJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: fullfilling, challenging
Cons: a little too much phone. being layed off.
Working at MidAmerican Energy was a more serious, detailed job than I had had before. Electric outages, gas leaks, meter reads ect. My main duty was to answer incoming calls, customers calling about their billing and outages. I even spent one day with a meter reader and some of the situations they go thru were amazing, I learned they do a lot more than read meters.

Poor management and depressing atmosphere
Senior Engineer (Current Employee), Des Moines, IAJuly 7, 2013
Pros: you get to drive a ford taurus that you better not scratch.
Cons: too many to list
MidAmerican Energy continues to come up with new rules and penaties for employees that create poor morale and suck all the fun out of working for this employer.

MidAmerican Energy offers multiple areas within the company for movement. The environment is fun and flexible.
Account Executive (Current Employee), Davenport, IAJune 11, 2013
MidAmerican Energy Company is a large company that offers excellent benefits, flexible hours, and is a fun learning environment. Everyone is always willing to help get the job done and meet deadlines.

The most important part of the job was meeting the customer and working with them on a win/win agreement. The hardest part of the job would be losing a customer to a competitor after working with them for several years.

Management Doesn't Listen!
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee), IowaMay 5, 2013
Pros: breaks, quitting, going home
Cons: management, workload, overall job itself
The department I worked in was paranoid and full of immature unprofessional people. Management was poor and didn't listen. It was pointless going to management because they wouldn't listen. They just liked hearing themselves talk. Ideas for improvement were squashed in favor of doing things the way they have always been done, especially if the idea didn't come from management. You were treated like a robot and given unreasonable and unattainable goals. There was no support to help you be successful. Be careful when applying for a job and make sure it's what you think it is. I thought I was applying for a job I'd like and ended up in a position I loathed. The department also had high turnover because of these factors

I had a wonderful supervisor in quality. We were expected to get our work done on time but also had time to work on our inter-relationships in an entertaining way.
