Management has an "us against them" mentality
Lineman, cable splicer, meter technician (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – March 27, 2017
Pay is on a lower scale than other electrical utilities throughout the country. Morale as a whole is very low. Company has an "us against them" mentality. The company frowns on a supervisor that a particular department might be fond of. They send out a conduct and ethics pamphlet every year that they want employees to abide by, however, management is constantly breaking that protocol as if it didn't exist. Total double standard, VERY frustrating company to work for. If an employee happens to do something that the management does not like, there is always retaliation, whether it is legal, ethical, or not. Workers are always kept in a high stress working situation, because management always has them looking over their shoulder. And it is obvious that they want that kind of control. If any employee should happen to read this review, they would think, "AMEN"
