As I came up the ladder at large gas and electric companies, I had no idea what I was missing. Since joining Georgia Transmission, however, I’ve seen why small companies are in vogue – they’re places where everyone can make a big difference. In surveys, our employees confirm this. They say the main attractions here are the ability to “make a difference” and a sense of community.
In some industries, small-company benefits can come with small-business disadvantages. Not here. We’re a small company with a rare blend of small- and large-company qualities, including:
Challenging work. Imagine being one of only 275 people charged with helping plan the statewide power grid, maintaining more than 3,000 miles of high-voltage systems, building more than $2 billion in new facilities, rapidly responding to power outages and adapting to global changes to power generation, reliability and conservation. You don’t have to be told you count. You can see your efforts make a difference to our owners — 39 of the state’s 42 community-owned electric membership cooperatives – and, in turn, the reliable electricity for millions of people.
Stability. Stability comes from being a provider of a vital public service in a fast-growing state, and being the sole builder and maintainer of high-voltage systems for the state’s electric membership cooperatives. As such, we are a small company with large-company pay, benefits, opportunity for advancement, internal training and other strengths.
Collegial atmosphere. Our employees are not lost in a bureaucracy. We are on a first-name basis with one another and our customers, the managers of 39 EMCs which jointly own us. Each person on our team has an important role in the planning, construction and maintenance of the state’s power grid. This rewarding work is complemented by a congenial atmosphere in which the all-associates meetings are known for frequent laughter.
Having a vital mission. Helping keep the lights on for millions of people allows for immediate reward and job satisfaction. When you add in a desirable city and suburbs, you can quickly see why we have low turnover and our ranks include top electric transmission professionals.
Please contact us today to learn more about our rare blend of small- and large-company advantages. Career changes are important decisions, and I invite you to come see what you might be missing.
Thanks for considering us.
Mike Smith, President and CEO
