    Pros

    Nice people, good benefits, lovely facilities. It had a great vibe and the students are smart and funny.

    Cons

    No real job security though, if there is a decanal change you could end up losing your job as I did. Change of priorities, etc. Pay is not competitive.

    Pros

    This is a utility, which offers a stable and secure work place. The percentage basis of 401K contribution is comparatively high, but by the time you consider the lower wages, the contribution ends up being the same as other places of employment.

    Cons

    pay and benefits are far below par. It si said, they do market analysis, but other places in the area pay about 2X, others off 90% insurance coverage, while NWE offers 75%. Others offer 4 to 6 weeks vacation, NWE offers 3. Others offer AD&D at no cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get pay and benefits up to retain workers long term. I believe this would also help attract more qualified people.
