    Pros

    "Legacy" NU was an ethical place to work. Great communication, fiscally responsible, good to workers who genuinely care for customers.

    Cons

    NU merged with NSTAR who now runs the company (NSTARs executive management). Their "fiscally conservative" stance (see Glass Door's NSTAR review) is more regressive and damaging to than helping efficiency and effectiveness. Top down (rather than collaborative) management approach. Currently laying off workers in corporate who help coordinate work for outages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep transparency and communications open. Embrace collaboration rather than a militaristic, top-down, "we'll tell if you need to know" management style.
