    I have been working at EnergySolutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy working here because I get along with my co-workers and boss. The benefits are great and they help with your retirement. I personally do not take their health care because I take my military benefits, but the people I work with have never complained about their plans.

    Cons

    This is just a personal con but I do not feel like I could grow in this company. There are not that many younger people out here so there is not a great training/mentoring program to get the younger crowd involved.

    Pros

    Great group of people working at the company. Smart, friendly, established engineers with experience in the nuclear industry.

    Cons

    Good chance you could spend a majority of your time on one project. However, if you ask, they will try to move you around to different work within the office/area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to improve relationship with employee continuing education or specified training.

    I have been working at EnergySolutions full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros.

    Cons

    The upper management doesn't care about the employees. There are no trainings or meetings to discuss employee career path and expectations. The upper management only cares about making money for themselves.

    I worked at EnergySolutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only good thing about this work hours as you get every other Friday off

    Cons

    No growth opportunity, no raise or bonus in the right way. You have to put in lot extra hours and there is compensation for time-off or any other. Senior Management does not value their employees, does communicate well with employees and always showing the false picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating employee as resources not as a cost entity. Have some time of feedback for Senior Management from the employees and you would know what employees think about the senior management. There is clear favoritism in this company and the recent data would indicate why young talent is leaving the company.

    I worked at EnergySolutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    OK benefits, friendly colleagues, interesting projects. The workplace had a good atmosphere and did a pretty good job with work-life balance.

    Cons

    Everything changes every year: management, available benefits (including insurance carriers!), available work, CEO... Not very many opportunities to grow in the job. I'm not sure I like the long-term outlook of this company. They're way too focused on cost these days. Zero warning before I got laid off.

    Pros

    The pay was good. Some days you just sat around doing nothing but getting paid.

    Cons

    The days were long. Priorities changed by the minute. Lack of communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what ALL the workers are saying. Remember they are the ones completeing the work.

    I worked at EnergySolutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Use to be good place to work, with supportive managers.

    Cons

    Has changed CEO's 3 times in last 4 years. Went from private, to public, and back to private in 4 years. Constant changes in organization structure. Lousy communication, no support system. Changed focus from client, project, and employee to strictly bottom line. Only concern seems to be any more is making the numbers so management can collect their bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach regarding establishing trust. Trust is not something you can gain by forcing your employees to sit through a speed of trust workshop. You need to stop over looking policy and procedures violations from upper management. Establish open and honest communication. Stop cleaning house of all your seasoned long term employees for cheap inexperienced ones just so you can look like you improved your bottom line to get your Bonus.

    I have been working at EnergySolutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I do not think there are any positive things to say.

    Cons

    Top management to manager do not care about employee self development, they use employee's credential for bidding process but does not support employee to get professional certification or help them maintain their licences. No proper merit raise even if you put extra hours to meet dead lines, performance review system sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to employee and have a proper plan for career advancement, do not force people to stay in the same job even though they are doing a great job. If there is no career advancement it would be difficult to retain talent. Have proper performance review system and merit raise should be based on performance.
