    Pros

    Newalta provides top rate training for it's field operators. They provide the proper PPE and they keep it coming every week by allowing the operators to submit a needs list.

    Cons

    lower management inter-office political backstabbing, "buddy" favoritism, and rampant dishonesty breaking down trust between operators and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Field Supervisors and Sr Operators maintain a level of dishonest politics with the operators. Overall the company could be a great company if not for the petty politics hindering lower level management.

    I worked at NewAlta full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nada. Once you think you are comfortable and working with management that has your best interests, someone in management gets fired, new hire will come in and clean house. No matter what you do it is NEVER enough.

    Cons

    Please see cons. No work life balance. This company looks perfect on paper but in reality, it is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your staff, or you will not have any.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
