Just what you would expect from a utility.

Manager (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ (US)

I worked at SRP

ProsYou won't be working long into the night as the company definitely has a "nine to five" culture. Most work weeks will be 40 hours (nominal) and less than that after you net out your long lunches and ample morning and afternoon breaks. The quality cafeteria is an indication of, and inducement to, the social culture prevalent here.

Additionally, you'll enjoy relative job security so long as you keep yourself positioned in a core business function and ensure good relations with your immediate supervisor.

ConsDespite a "flattening" of the "spans and layers" several years ago, there continues to be an excessive middle management cadre with little to do. As a result you'll find yourself in meetings with no clear purpose and too many attendees, and probably be subjected to weekly status meetings and/or written status reports. Salary administration is driven by a cumbersome and unhelpful annual performance review process, and the annual raise percentage spread between outstanding, average, and below average performers is such that it will take many years for a meaningful pay delta to emerge. Top performers could earn far more, and be given greater responsibility, elsewhere. Many will nevertheless stay at SRP for the job security and great benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrim the fat out of the middle management ranks. Too many managers with little to do but take long lunches with each other on the company expense account. Push responsibility down to the "worker" level and eliminate the time wasted in meetings and reporting to your boss so he can report to his boss, etc.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
