    Pros

    Good people to work with. I miss my former colleagues.

    Cons

    If you leave this industry, as many of us had to without our choosing... you'll learn quickly that there aren't many other utilities to choose from. Its a detriment to you that you'll have knowledge of a very specialized industry. Also to note. You will be assigned a storm assignment during severe storms. We were not paid for the additional hours worked. And they were long shifts.

    Advice to Management

    It's disappointing that so many people and departments were let go after NSTAR was acquired by Northeast Utilities. Cuts were made widely without considering the benefit of holding on to staff who have the knowledge of the industry and the company. I would like to see them bring back former NSTAR employees rather than hire in new people and training them


  2. Old school

    Pros

    There are good benefits and it is a very stable job. You can learn a lot on the job.

    Cons

    Always a lot of pressure to do more with less. There is no consideration for your life outside of work. There is no benefit for actually working smarter. If you have to work a storm or go above and beyond for a special project that isn't apart of your job they do not reward you in any way. They expect that anything they want goes.

    Advice to Management

    Show your supervisors that you will back them up when they do what you ask for. There is a lack of appreciation that is felt among the supervisory ranks.
