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

    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)

  2. "Good place to gain meaningful experience but only if you get lucky with your internship rotation."

    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at NV Energy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The internship program usually begins when your Spring semester ends and lasts till the end of next Spring semester (1 Year). The company rotates your internship between different departments when you reapply for the next year. Some departments had great meaningful work. Very easy-going and professional work culture. They seem to prioritize promoting from within since all of my bosses were also ex-interns from years back. So it looks like there's definitely upwards mobility within this company.

    Cons

    The internship rotations seems random. For one year, I was placed into a department where I felt like they didn't even needed an intern. Also, meaningful work comes and goes. Sometimes, you will be busy all-day for a week or two, and then all of sudden, there's no suitable intern work for weeks to come. I suspect its because managers require interns for a specific project and once the project is finished, there's no more work for the intern to do. The managers are very hands-off and you are thrown into the deep end to learn on your own.
