    Former Employee - Accounting in Marlboro, MA

    I worked at Brookfield Renewable Power full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None 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.

    Cons

    No future for anyone who wants to have a life outside of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay 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.

    I have been working at Brookfield Renewable Power full-time

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Control 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.
