Worked with a good bunch of guys
Pretty hard to get on with EPCOR Utilities. Depending on where you are placed, you could be pigeonholed with no opportunity to advance. Nepotism is evident everywhere. People with multiple DO NOT REHIRE recommendations are hired over other competent employees.

Safety First
Majority of communication downstream in the company revolved around safety. Incidents always led to reactionary measures and increased messaging. Despite safety first messaging, field staff were required to get things done fast, properly. Realistically, something always has to give, and that something should be time.

Prductive and fun work place with games like corn hole and lottery
We get tickets from various departments for hardware and software issues
We troubleshoot and configure the required applications , hardware

SCCM update issues are another challenge

Good knowledge of SQL and hand on experience is all it need to resolve.

Unfortunately my contract was ended.

Should have been a nice place
In the beginning all was great. However, supervisor and manager kept changing expectations and goals. They seemed supportive but in the end were really not.

You might be luckier in a different department.

Watch your back ...
Terrible managers ... highly incompetent and will not hesitate to throw you under the bus for failures that are their responsibility. Stressful work environment. Lack of transparency. People get fired all the time.

I would not work here again -- despite there being good people/co-workers and good work-life balance opportunities. Not worth the mental stress of dealing with bad managers, a complicit HR department and a culture that revolves around backstabbing others to get ahead.


Just sad that good people who work hard get treated so badly ... avoid!

If I wasn't moving I would stay there until I retire
This has been the best experience of my professional career.
Management culture is great, they care about us as people and employees. Managers are embedded into the teams and will support you if you need help.

We work with new tools, we have access to MSDN, everything you could want, we get it. Project management is not quite agile but they're making progress.

The software we build gets used by people everyday and we interact with the users providing updates year after year. It's so nice to actually see something you built get used..


I would work here again 100%

For those who look for balance of Life and Work
Good place to work and Live life, Provides good balance of Life and Work. Salary is not high, Most Analyst positions are part of csu52 union and hence salary grades.

Terrible company
Worst management I’ve ever experienced. Human Resources will crucify union people for speaking up. I can’t say enough about this nasty place to properly communicate how poorly run certain areas of this company are handled.
Pros
They provide water and rkectricity
Cons

Good crew to work with
The crew I am working with is hard work and dedicated to quality work and to bond together as a team. Training is available to all field workers at no cost to the worker.

Great benefits and salary, however management is a drawback
Overall the workplace is great and you learn a lot starting out. However, depending on which area you work, management may not be the best for your personal and career development.

Productive job
Its a great company with good work culture. Most of the positions are union positions and graded annually. I am learning lots of application integrations with Oracle and SQL server.

Clock watching Negative Company
This company focuses only on negative aspects. Never any positive recognition or feedback. If you want a place where you feel like your back in high school, then this is it. Bullying happening all around you. No matter how hard you work you can't get past the favourites in the company regardless if you have more seniority or work your butt off Would not recommend this company if my life depended upon it.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Very negative Atmosphere

Overall Good Employer
My immediate supervisor was a bully. But the middle managment was okay. Work life balance is okay as well as the salary. The benefits were THE BEST I have EVER seen. Benefits made the job okay.
Pros

Slow reaction to bullying complaints
