Energy Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

In physics, energy is the quantitative property that must be transferred to an object in order to perform work on, or to heat, the object. Energy is a conserved quantity; the law of conservation of energy states that energy can be converted in form, but not created or destroyed. The SI unit of energy is the joule, which is the energy transferred to an object by the work of moving it a distance of 1 metre against a force of 1 newton. Common forms of energy include the kinetic energy of a moving object, the potential energy stored by an object's position in a force field (gravitational, electric or magnetic), the elastic energy stored by stretching solid objects, the chemical energy released when a fuel burns, the radiant energy carried by light, and the thermal energy due to an object's temperature. Mass and energy are closely related. Due to mass–energy equivalence, any object that has mass when stationary (called rest mass) also has an equivalent amount of energy whose form is called rest energy, and any additional energy (of any form) acquired by the object above that rest energy will increase the object's total mass just as it increases its total energy. For example, after heating an object, its increase in energy could be measured as a small increase in mass, with a sensitive enough scale. Living organisms require energy to stay alive, such as the energy humans get from food. Human civilization requires energy to function, which it gets from energy resources such as fossil fuels, nuclear fuel, or renewable energy. The processes of Earth's climate and ecosystem are driven by the radiant energy Earth receives from the sun and the geothermal energy contained within the earth.

The research study (ExternE, Externalities of Energy), undertaken from 1995 to 2005 found that the cost of producing electricity from coal or oil would double over its present value, and the cost of electricity production from gas would increase by 30% if external costs such as damage to the environment and to human health, from the airborne particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, chromium VI and arsenic emissions produced by these sources, were taken into account. It was estimated in the study that these external, downstream, fossil fuel costs amount up to 1–2% of the EU's entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and this was before the external cost of global warming from these sources was even included. The study also found that the environmental and health costs of nuclear power, per unit of energy delivered, was €0.0019/kWh, which was found to be lower than that of many renewable sources including that caused by biomass and photovoltaic solar panels, and was thirty times lower than coal at €0.06/kWh, or 6 cents/kWh, with the energy sources of the lowest external environmental and health costs associated with it being wind power at €0.0009/kWh.

Attic and Ductseal (Current Employee) says

"Not a good company when we have to dry personal cars , and we always have to wait on materials to work and if jobs dont get done due to materials the installers get blame Cons: not everyday is a forsure day to work, no benefits not enough pay no insurance and installers dont get treated well"

Energy Specialist (Current Employee) says

"I would rate this job as an okay job for a young person. Sometimes will be sent into extreme heat environments in attics. A job that is a necessity to have attention to detail so that you don't break drywall. Cons: Inconsistent schedule."

Former Employee - Administrative says

"I worked at US Department of Energy full-time for less than a year Cons: Favoritism for non diverse folks. Senior management and directors think there are above everything and do what they wish. Some contractors feel like they can treat minorities like dirt and get away with it. Contractors are awarded very special privileges. Sometimes even federal employees enable their lazyness and support unfairness. It's unfair to the people actually doing the work."

Former Employee - Courier says

"I worked at US Department of Energy full-time for less than a year Cons: Everything else. CAUTION. You'll have a bad taste for those that do this job."

Former Employee - Auditor says

"I worked at US Department of Energy full-time for more than a year Cons: Worst work environment I have ever experienced. This office has a lot of gossip and trust problems from the top to the bottom. The management does not care about the treatment of their workers. There are tons of clicks going on and the management has no control. There is a lot of favortism. The Auditors in Charge also have no guidance or team leading experience. DONT EVER WORK HERE."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at US Department of Energy full-time for less than a year Cons: Hostile, demoralizing, disrespectful team lead from the lead lead and government customer. Whole team incumbents bullied, berated constantly. Mangementnwas informed collectively as a team, but failed to get rid of the toxic waste of the lead. Government customer NNSA is warped and cultivates, initiates evil doings. Unbelievable!"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at US Department of Energy full-time Cons: boredom, management does not manage"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at US Department of Energy full-time Cons: Terrible Management that follows discouraging leadership styles."

Former Employee - Financial Market Development Lead says

"I worked at US Department of Energy full-time for more than 3 years Cons: The morale was lower than anywhere I've ever been. Leadership was management-challenged."

Program Analyst says

"I worked at US Department of Energy Cons: This is not a good environment for minorities."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at US Department of Energy full-time for more than 5 years Cons: They pigeon-hole you into whatever role they need filled, regardless of what they brought you in as. If you work hard and do well in that role, you are left there with no consideration as to whether it is something you want to do, if it's something in your field, even if you hate it. There is no real in-company career ladder, so if you don't get that in writing don't expect you will have any upward mobility. They don't care if you're overqualified for the misc. crap they have you doing. They go based on seniority, so if you've been with DOE-SR forever then you may have more of a say...but seeing as how many people have been there for 20+ years, good luck with that one. They are short-staffed because retention is terrible and they overload the work on people that do produce and do nothing to those that don't because it's ridiculously difficult to fire under-performers in government. Also, there is strong age-ism bias against younger employees and slight sexism in some organizations. Strong pref. for Navy nukes, also; it shows up all the time, across the board at DOE-SR."
