Clicks, back stabbing, unsafe. Not a gloving company but works like one.
Former Employee (Former Employee), NevadaAugust 3, 2014
Cons: if you're not home grown then you're not welcome, poor treatment by peers, not a safe working company
Find somewhere else to go. It does not matter what you know or what experience you have. The only thing that matters is if you're well liked. Classic "Good 'ol boy" work atmosphere. General Foreman allow for Foreman and Journeyman Lineman to manipulate them. Lots of misinformation on new employees passed on to help with firing them. Very few helpful – more... individuals that are sincere with showing you NV Energy's ways of working. Journeyman Lineman will leave new (JL ) out of loop on new jobs and job locations on purpose to keep you away. Apprentices are poorly treated by JL. Lots of back stabbing. NV Energy is a sticking company but Foreman allow JL to constantly glove hot circuits with poor coverup. OSHA should investigate NV Energy's practices and conditions. – less

senior safety advisor (Former Employee), northern nevadsJuly 19, 2014
Pros: nice place to live
Cons: you have to have leadership.... this corporation has none
Former Safety Advisor. This company has run off every decent safety person they have hired in the last 6 years

Doltish culture....sooner or later that square peg will fit a round hole.

Generally disenfranchised workforce... tons of near retirement people counting down. If you like 'empowerment' you wont get it here.

Safety and training are a cost – more... of doing business... and they dont spend much .... raise your hand with a suggestion get beat down. – less

The 'rubber glove' issue in reno is indicative of an overall lack of things needed to run a safe operation. We tied up 4 years trying to purchase a 'standard' arc rated harness. Department heads run their show as they see fit....no standard, no training, no continuity. The Mid American buy out has the old timers baffled. Expect a purge this next year. BUFFET wont tolerate the stupid.

Competitive Salary/Benefits - Poor Management
Programmer III(Senior Software Developer) (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 3, 2014
Pros: salary
Cons: management
This company likes to outsource it's work to India regardless of the fact that nothing gets accomplished in terms of IT related tasks when you do this. They do not value experience at all and they are extremely top heavy. About a dozen VPs and over 50 executives(not including the directors-250k+/yr that report to the executives) for company with 2000 – more... employees is bit excessive. The execs keep promoting each other and then they cut the lower wage positions. – less

o Drafter II, Reid Gardener Power Plant (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVJanuary 14, 2014
Started out as a drafter and was promoted up words to Utility Coordinator. After the first reorganization I was moved to a Utility Designer. After the second reorganization I was moved to a designer in the Asset Management department. I learned a lot about the Utility Business. Interacting with customers, engineers, internal customers.
Everyone I worked – more... with were very helpful and educational. I learned a lot from my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was trying to get everything coordinated with the internal customer to get the power delivered to the customer. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to look at something that you designed, created. – less

An excellent and diverse company to work for.
Call Center & Rates & Regulatory Coordinator (Former Employee), Reno, NVNovember 20, 2013
Pros: a very lucrative and stable company to have a career with.
Cons: company travel.
The only reason I was not able to make a career out of NV Energy, was because I have a son, where at the time was 12 years old. This position required frequent travel to Las Vegas for rate hearings. My spouse's employer also required a great amount of travel, resulting in personal home-conflict. Due to those circumstances, the family made a decision – more... for me to resign from NV Energy to stay home to care for my son. – less
