    I have been working at EPCOR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance; competitive pay; one of the better workplaces in Edmonton; company is on a growth trajectory which means room to move around and progress

    Cons

    Steady employment (low risk of job loss) and a great pension plan means people don't leave the company; little room for people to move up the corporate ladder due to this

    Advice to Management

    Make a structured development program for each employee so you don't lose some of the smart folks you have

    I worked at EPCOR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wages are competitive and the benefits are good. The company is very involved in the community and staff are encouraged to volunteer.

    Cons

    There is a highly noticeable gap between management and staff with a real "Us vs. Them" attitude on both sides. Staff are treated poorly and almost ignored by management in many cases. Management and senior management are often under qualified to do their jobs and nepotism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Start to consider your staff as equal and create happy teams.
