Working for Energy Northwest: Columbia Nuclear Generating Station10 Sep 2020 - Lead Maintenance Planner in Richland, WARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
High Pay, good benefits package, matching 401K, state pension, minimal supervisor micro-management, annual performance pay review, department/company performance bonuses, advancement opportunities.
Highly rule and procedure based. requires strong knowledge of NRC federal regulations with strict adherence and work required in a radiation environment. Many milestones, deadlines and emergent maintenance and projects. Promptness of necessary resources and task implementations slower than would typically be expected. Frequent plan evaluations, rule/procedure conformance adherence verifications, work plan rewrites and plan changes prior to implementation.Continue reading

Not a bad place to work, need to know people to move up1 Sep 2015 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Decent pay, overall good work experience, great people. Good benefits including a state pension as well as 401K. Medical and Dental are also pretty good.
Located about 30 minutes away from anywhere. Traffic coming home can be bad with Hanford. No real opportunity to advance unless you know upper management. People are given jobs because they know upper management, which leads to a good amount of people not knowing what they're doing.Continue reading

Young Engineer29 Sep 2015 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Many opportunities around the plant to try new things. The work varies from day to day with each task bringing new challenges. Good Benefits
Long hours are often due to low staff and large work load. Continuously on call. Documentation is ridiculously difficult to find for many things. Almost impossible to get job related training. Limited to learning on your own for most things. Work life balance is terrible since schedule and cost drive everything. It can be difficult to maintain an effective technical conscience. Company likes to farm out work as much as possible and often times the contractors are sub par. The contractors don't have an incentive for providing quality work.

Things are improving15 May 2013 - Individual Contributor in Richland, WARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The culture for excellence appears to be catching on; very good pay, good benefits. Our ranking within the industry is improving.
Stressful and demanding work environment; no work-life balance. Middle management still lacks ability to manage workload dispursement, performance and engagement. Some departments are better than others.

Project manager1 Apr 2016 -RecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good benefits, pension plan. Plenty of training opportunities--usually.
Weak support for project managers. A lot of responsibility, not much authority.
