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

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Westwood, MA

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

    A Generally Steady Company

    Information Technology (Former Employee)

    I worked at NSTAR Electric full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: The business atmosphere is generally steadier than many other companies, due to its place in the utility industry. As a result, management can take… Cons: The company culture is careful and deliberate. As a result, sometimes decision-making is slower than some will… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
