    I have been working at NorthWestern Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay. Decent hours. Good benefits and PTO

    Cons

    Management is ridiculous. They are not very understanding if you are going through a major illness. They say their is room for advancement but the criteria is unreachable even if you have years of experience there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hey how about you give people who have worked in your establishment for YEARS a chance in other positions.

    I have been working at NorthWestern Energy

    Pros

    This is a utility, which offers a stable and secure work place. The percentage basis of 401K contribution is comparatively high, but by the time you consider the lower wages, the contribution ends up being the same as other places of employment.

    Cons

    pay and benefits are far below par. It si said, they do market analysis, but other places in the area pay about 2X, others off 90% insurance coverage, while NWE offers 75%. Others offer 4 to 6 weeks vacation, NWE offers 3. Others offer AD&D at no cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get pay and benefits up to retain workers long term. I believe this would also help attract more qualified people.
