Working in IT at APS can be frustrating. Many areas are becoming understaffed due to pay not being competitive and people leaving. It is taking a long time to fill those positions.Most of IT's budget is directed to one large bloated project (SCORE) that has rambled on for over 3 years now, and keeps being delayed. Many applications are older, and many are home grown. This limits the opportunity to work with newer technologies and grow your skills. APS is not currently developing new home grown applications, so the opportunity to do development isn't there, just support the existing legacy applications.With around 500 full time IT employees, and around 1,000 IT contractors, it is easy to feel lost in the shuffle.The benefits are great, as is the PTO. Again, the pay is lacking, and it is questionable if the benefits make up for it. IT management can be hit or miss, as some leaders are great and show empathy, while others lack the skills necessary to effectively run their teams.

Overall, management is good at APS. Safety culture is a huge part of working at APS. The work from Home option is excellent. IT teams could have a bit better communication between departments. All the coworkers I have worked with have been helpful and friendly. APS is inclusive and LGBTQ-friendly. APS pay has not kept up with the tech industry, which is probably the most significant issue here at APS.

APS as a whole has pretty good benefits. The insurance is the pretty typical, high deductible plan with about 75% paid by the company. PTO starts at 80 hrs and quickly increases, after 5 years you will have 200 hrs available. The company offers 6 weeks paternity leave for both parents, which is very progressive. Whether you have time to use it depends on your job. This company is very concerned about shareholders, and not about quality of service. This is especially detrimental at the nuclear power plant where resources are needed to perform quality work. Management has continued to reduce money and employee headcount so the frontline has to try to do more with less, with the end goal of increasing shareholder profits. Over the last few years, the executive management team have voted to reduce bonuses and raises for frontline employees while their salaries have increased by millions. This is a negative and destructive trend and as a result employees are leaving the company very quickly.

I was able to learn as much as I wanted. My manager would tech me himself, or set me up for classes and training as much as I wanted to take. I appreciated everything I learned, and everyone I worked with. Great team!

APS provides good pay, benefits, and depending on your work group, a flexible work from home policy. There is also a lot of stability working for APS, with numerous employees spending 10, 20 and 30+ years at the company.
