    I have been working at NSTAR full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, good work/life balance, still offer pension plans, interesting work

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement, behind the technological times (still use office 2003), very cheap (will not provide even management splitting time in two different locations with a laptop), almost everyone works in a cubicle with little light including managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade technologies more quickly to be more in line with NU Philosophy, offer laptops to employees, provide more opportunities for advancement, provide all managers with an office.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Westwood, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NSTAR in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews face to face with NSTAR and the way I was handled from HR, to sales, to engineering and management was exceptional. They described the job I interviewed for, in complete detail in regards to the technical, administrative and other functional tasks/duties and they demonstrated down to the personal level about how much they care about the people they hire not just as employees but as individuals with needs and wants. The personnel I interviewed with want people to join NSTAR as members of an extended family for the long term in order to be comfortable to operate at their best. Last but not least, they offer good benefits and a pension plan, which is rear in the corporate world these days. They also offered advancement opportunities and a clear vision about the future of the company and how one could be inclusive to their vision for career growth.
