    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great retirement, good healthcare benefits. Excellent PTO and holidays.

    Cons

    Pay is so-so. HR, payroll, and senior leadership insist a 50 hour week is the expected norm. Too much work with not enough resources. Senior leadership is not always transparent and honest. There are competing goals and not all can be achieved simultaneously. Customer satisfaction/experience, best in industry maintenance, best place to work, lowest rates in the country, and getting Berkshire Hathaway the state approved maximum ROI. It really can't be done and it's causing employees to turn on each other.
