    I worked at Northeast Utilities full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vast amount of long-term employees with great expertise and loyalty.

    Cons

    This company has competing goals, low morale and several quiet layoffs. In addition, due to public scrutiny over response to storm outages, the CEO was forced to resign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify goals, make it clear how individual contributions help reach those goals and communicate much more.

    I have been working at Northeast Utilities full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    o Biggest utility in New England - looks good to have on resume
    o Have/Had smart people but most are leaving due to poor management after merger

    Cons

    o Low salary compare to market
    o New management cold towards employees - again, this is after merger
    o Used to be very focus on internal training and education - after merger, it's all about cost cutting
    o Company has too many seniors where they no longer feel the need to work hard
    o Culture is too old, very closed minded to new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    o Cost cutting is important, but retaining talents is even more important.
    o Need to weed out all the dead-weight
    o Too many politics and lack of leadership

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
