    Old workforce, antique leadership

    Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat pay if you are not working a storm for free. Great benefits which they have recently started to take away from management. If you are in the union you can do anything you want and make as much money as you want.

    ConsLack of leadership. Everything I'd fly by the seat of your pants. During storms management works for free while the union gets rich.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnforce the rules when it comes to the union. Management should be paid for their time worked. Don't lead through fear.

    Not the place for a young aspiring individual or a technically savvy veteran.

    ProsHealth Care and 401k packages are good.
         - Their PPO plans are highly subsidized compared to anywhere else in the local area.
         - Matched 401k packages 50% up to ~10-15% of yearly salary.

    Fiscally Conservative Company

    Its a very stable job. It is very difficult to fired from this company unless it is an ethical issue

    ConsCompensation for employees is not great. You get paid what you get paid. Unfortunately, this has the potential to breed complacency in the workforce.

    Most of the technical work is contracted out. Supervisors/Managers become excel sheet managers and production trackers.

    There is some history of bad relations between Union and Management and making it difficult for both to come together to work. There can be antagonistic attitudes while there. New employees find may find this dynamic very awkward and will spend a lot of time navigating this issue.

    IT infrastructure and server speed could be improved. Network memory is small (circa 2009) making it difficult to share information (ie photos, documents, related media for work)

    Fiscally Conservative Company. Most of my time was spent finding the least expensive way of doing things and then seeing if I could make it even less expensive

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward technical excellence. Invest more in engineering workforce. Lose the engineering union that is holding you back.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
