Software Engineer II (Current Employee) – Urbandale, IA – June 3, 2019
One of the biggest issues MidAmerican has had is rigid IT management. There has been a lot of instances of refusal to purchase enterprise tools and instead using in-house tools which make our lives exponentially more difficult. We have also had 4 different VPs in the 6 years i have been here, and every time it changes the old VP's "visions" get tossed out and replaced by the new one's.
Job security, starting pay
Insurance isn't amazing, IT department lags behind industry, sone tension between business and IT, promotions are almost nonexistent unless you apply for positions in different groups
Engineer (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – June 27, 2019
New drive and vision, they've addressed the union side and forgot their own. Benefits are slowly being drained, a new "open floor plan" nobody asked for that's historically failed at every other major corporation. Complaints about this new plan fall on deaf ears, don't be fooled by the town hall meetings. New job titles and positions to fill that don't address the core business functions, AKA too many chiefs and no Indians. Promotions are seldom and annual raises don't even meet annual GDP increase.
