Secure in uncertain times

Although the direction at corporate is questionable. The situation on the ground is different and fulfilling. In a country that is collapsing due to politics and hyperinflation being in a utility gives a sense of security and relief

A once great company.

What was once a great company is now a company who cares more about it's reliability awards than it's employees. They preach safely is their number one goal but will have managers who have never worked a day in the tools tell you what to do while disregarding the same rules that they create to discipline you. Many employees see the writing on the wall and are leaving for other companies who used to be considered inferior. Nothing short of 180 will save this company.

Overall good company to work for

A lot of changes in the power industry translates to learning opportunities. The dept provides trainings and opportunities to try new things. It's a utility so a lot of job security. Good compensation and benefits.

Pros

Job security, comp

Cons

Work life balance

Nothing stands out. Its the worst position I have ever had.

Horrible place to work. Constant training that they use it to threaten you job with. No real day to day management. Didn't have a manager for 4 months. I didn't know about all the training that had to be completer over the first year.

Pros

none

Cons

No management.

Great place to work

Some of the best people I ever worked with. The company always tried to keep people at the core of their policies, but it is a business that accountable to its share holders first.

Pros

Great people

Cons

Company bureaucrats are your typical executives not the nicest people.

Please don’t apply here

Great stepping stone and resume builder nothing more. Upper management doesn’t care about you and they work you so hard you don’t have time to increase the skills you want to improve.

A boring workplace but with a stable and usually low stress environment

A boring workplace but with a stable and usually low stress environment. I worked at the salem nuclear plant so it was a much different culture than the rest of the company.

The utility model creates dysfunctional managers

The utility model is one where public funds are thrown at the utility and success is defined as spending the money with nothing left over. Due to this, the compensation is very good. However, the responsibility to perform is not there. There are no consequences for mismanagement and waste. Because of this, you have managers who have spent their entire working life in this alternate reality and are completely out of touch with how business is run. Change is anathema and mediocrity is what they strive for. The environment is dog eat dog. If you want excellent pay with very little actual production or responsibility, this utility is for you. It is possible to survive if you keep your head down. If you have self-respect, eventually you will leave.

Pros

Compensation

Cons

Poor management. Hostile work environment. Waste of public funds.
