    Accounting

    Accounting (Former Employee) Marlboro, MA

    ProsNone I can think of, Set up dept, and then dismissed by new CFO, known in the company as an 'expert' prior to her arrival but CFO would not promote! Gives higher jobs to consultants rather than people who know the company.

    ConsNo future for anyone who wants to have a life outside of work

    Advice to Senior Managementpay attention to what is going on around you, as much as we like to think we hire decent people some people are just cruel and inappropriate; you're accounting department essentially had a total turnover in less than 5 years, there can't be that many accountants that can't do the job. HR is not HR, don't trust them. VP in HR is anti-social(no eye contact) and not in the least bit helpful.

    Control Room can be stressful but rewarding

    Systems Operator (Current Employee) Marlborough, MA

    ProsGreat benefits. Annual review process is fair, and the reviewers put effort into making it as objective as possible. Plenty of opportunity to develop control room related technical skills. Rotating shift work can provide some time management benefits. Opportunity to advance in management, if so desired.

    ConsControl room personnel somewhat isolated from everyone not involved in power plant operations. Hours worked per week can become tedious with vacations and/or training. Some control room positions seem undermanned versus the tasking available. Opportunities to advance in fields other than management currently seem rare.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Information Technology

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Gatineau, QC (Canada)

    ProsThere is an abundance of project oriented work.
    The culture has a rich diversity - a nice heterogeneous mix.
    The people you work with - team mates and resources - can be the best part of your day.
    Therefore, just know what your getting yourself into after reviewing the Cons. It is still a recommended enviornment - short term

    ConsThere is extreme immature reprehensible conduct due to uneducated inexperienced Management.

    This translates into a volatile IT environment that turns on a whim, based on an emotional decision without objectivity and without technical understanding (in an IT environment - an obvious challenge).

    That simply drives resources to put in the time and move on, making the environment a revolving door; a most difficult environment to support, but can be a good experience.

    It eventually will become much better when specific Management personel are purged.
