What is health insurance like at NV Energy?

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.

Advice to Management

Treat people fairly when it comes to work-life balance. While I understand goal setting is intended to be a stretch and improve the organization, be realistic with your goals. Don't pay your employees lip service - be honest. We don't need everything sugar coated. While I understand the need for metrics, don't tie our bonuses to things we have no ability to impact. To put it another way, if my bonus is affected by things I cannot impact, why would I even try to excel? Me going the extra mile has no effect on my reward. BTW, the CEO is no longer Paul Caudill, but Doug Cannon. My CEO approval reflects Doug, not Paul.

Great retirement, good healthcare benefits.

Does NV Energy have a pension plan?

Pros

401K match, great employees to work with

Cons

-No Pension -They have removed or decreased a lot of benefits since the Berkshire Hathaway merger/take over -During the covid pandemic, some department managers responded late with sending their employees to work from home -After covid, they offered employees the ability to work from home w 10% decrease in salary. Same 40 hours. Same work responsibilities . But less money. They claim that the decrease is for flexibility, decrease in car usage, decrease in gas cost ... I guess they didn’t consider the increase in energy usage at home, increase in Internet usage, increase in phone usage, ... it’s not clear why they are charging for flexibility if you work from home but employees who come to work get flexibility free of charge (ability work from home 1 day a week, ability to take hours off for appointments, etc.). And for some of us who live close to work, we are not really saving in gas or car usage. This is BS for the company to short employees. The decrease in salary makes no sense and WFH employees must work 40 hours. Employees who choose their safety and health as a priority shouldn’t be punished with a decrease in salary. -The company is technically challenge ... old software, software that has many bugs, etc -Some departments do not give employees the tools/equipment/technology needed to do their job successfully -The company monitors how much you print. -WFH for many employees was not an option until COVID pandemic took place -Poor leadership in the company -HR employees are incompetent, respond slowly to questions (if at all)
