Pros

The Company is well run and has the optimal number of layers of management to not only improve the customer experience but also the efficiency and profitability of the company. I am always impressed that team leaders and sales managers are focused on the customer.
NSL makes a very large impact and constantly trains its employees to better themselves, enhance their knowlege about energy efficiency and articulate that to the customer so that a family may take meaningful action to save money, become more comfortable, and improve the enviroment.

Cons

Salaries are not the highest but if you are in sales, your performance-pay is based on your work ethic, ability to take constructive criticism, and persistence - they teach the rest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay on track, utilize customer base to introduce new product offerings to help customers save money and reduce dependence on oil and gas.

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice and most share the same interests. In a good industry with many growth opportunities in the energy sector. Hands on experience with a diverse range of energy technologies.

    Cons

    I normally refrain from these reviews but I've grown tired of seeing these inflated ratings from the NSL HR department. This company brags publicly about it's growth but if you're one of the ones working within the company you loathe such growth. Very disorganized, churn-and-burn mentality with its employees and greenwashing are just a few of the things that come to mind when looking back at my time with NSL. Regardless of your role with the company you'll feel like a used car salesman because of flawed metrics and childish prize competitions for top conversion numbers. NSL hires a lot of recent college grads or professionals switching careers that won't speak up about the issues. Bottom line is only take a job with this company if you plan to stay a year at the most, which is what most do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really are serious about making a difference in the residential EE industry take a hard look in the mirror and fix your core business. Too many inefficiencies in operations and poor morale can be fixed if you slow down and invest more in your employees personally and professionally.

    Pros

    NSL is truly a mission based company that has a positive impact on its customers and the environment everyday. I don't know many other people who are as excited and happy to go to work every day as the people that work here. There are incredible opportunities for growth here. While most employees are at NSL because of it's environmental impact, it's also a great fit for people looking a unique and rapidly growing company.

    Cons

    You should not work here if you're looking for a typical 9-5, cookie cutter job where everything is laid out for you on a daily basis. There are growing pains at NSL and it can often be hectic, but no where else are you given an opportunity like this to take a project or a job and use it to have such an impact on your own personal and career development, customers and communities, and the environment. Every day is a new challenge and a learning experience, and that's what makes it such a unique place to be.
