MISO manages the electricity superhighway in the Central U.S. Through use of groundbreaking research and advanced technology, our highly skilled employees ensure power flows reliably to 42 million customers. MISO makes this happen by operating one of the world’s largest energy markets, with $25 billion in annual transactions. We are committed to being a trusted partner to our members and we strive to be the most reliable, value-creating Regional Transmission Organization.
Operating the electricity grid, running a robust energy market, planning for a bright future – it’s what our immensely talented and dedicated team does every day.
MISO – Why Work With Us?
For the past two decades, our employees have shaped and built a steadfast culture here at MISO. This strong foundation helps keep us grounded and committed, and serves as the moral compass that has led us to many past successes and will continue to propel us forward in the future.
Our culture, steered by a set of guiding principles, or ideals, is not the latest fad or next big thing in our history. Rather, it is the premise behind who we are and why we exist.
Ingrained in the culture, MISO’s core values guide our decisions and are fundamental to our success.

It is when all voices are represented and acknowledged that we are the most successful. Without every employee embodying our cornerstones of Customer Service, Effective Communication and Operational Excellence, our goal of being the most reliable, value-creating RTO would not be possible.
MISO’s employee-led and organized resource groups bring individuals together to create the best possible work environment. Our goals include strengthening internal ties, creating opportunities for personal and professional growth, collaboration and serving the community around us. MISO’s employee resource groups help us live out this mission.

The MISO Community does not stop there…
At MISO, we are dedicated to corporate citizenship and believe that our employees can work together to make a positive impact on our communities. That is why MISO is proud to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. MISO employees have donated over $1 million dollars and granted more than 100 wishes since 2007. Through fundraising and volunteering, MISO strives to make a difference in the lives of Wish kids and their families.
MISO employees are also given paid community service hours each month to give back to the community in any way they choose.
As the grid changes, so does our approach to meeting energy demands. We need a diversified group of smart, motivated problem solvers to overcome these challenges. MISO’s internship program helps prepare students for future roles as leaders and innovators in the energy industry.
Our interns are presented with meaningful and challenging projects that will have a direct impact on the success of MISO. Interns gain exposure to all aspects of the company and leave with a better understanding of how MISO and the corporate world work together to deliver power to over 42 million customers. MISO’s geographic footprint stretches across 15 states and one Canadian province. This allows interns to work with a diverse group of employees all across the nation.
