Very clicky - If you're not liked, you'll never get ahead.

Former Employee - Analyst in Northborough, MA
Former Employee - Analyst in Northborough, MA

I worked at National Grid USA full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

You get to learn a lot about different technologies. Mostly because Management doesn't want to do it. Time off is pretty good.

Cons

Always going through a re-organization. Just when you get something done, it has to be changed based on a whim. Employees in Syracuse get paid much higher salaries; although MA has a higher cost of living. It's pretty frustrating when a colleague who does the same job in your department gets paid $10,000-20,000 more than you do per year and do less work. Former Supervisor (based in NY) wasn't particularly fond of women and gave preferential treatment to males who worked in NY. No way to get ahead in position or salary, even though they piled more work on you. 1,200 employees laid-off last year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay employees in NY and NE the same salary for the same job. Promote from within. Don't hire someone off of the street with no experience.
