Pros: good pay, great benefits, unique environment, interesting projects
Cons: long work hours, single day weekends, lack of department work load prioritization, heavily regulated under the nrc
Days here were never really typical. Work varied from simple document changes to full modification packages. My time here was during a refueling outage (nuclear power plant). This was not a typical outage as there were a few events that complicated things.
I learned quite a bit about the nuclear power industry and how it all works to create electricity.
The – more... hardest part about my time there was the work hours and days plus the seemingly endless amount of priority work that would come up. From my personal experience communication wasn't the best between management and employees. Even though you may be working on the same project it seemed that there was still too much individual work to feel like team work.
It was a very interesting place. A lot of people will never get to see what you can see here. Although this wasn't the place for me, the work was varied and there was opportunity to learn across departments.
Not a bad place to work at all, but I just came in at a difficult time in the power plants history. My experience is unique and not typical. – less
