The politics of the company have changed over the years, but all in all, I still maintain the The United Illuminating Company is a great place to work.
I have been employed here for a total of 18 years. I left the company after 12 years, was gone for 5, and was rehired in 2007. After a full year, the previous 12 years were reinstated to me with full benefits of accumulated vacation time.
Several years after my return and most likely due to the recession, my job was eliminated. Instead of laying me off, I was shifted around to other areas of the company that needed assistance.
