    Excellent learning experience

    Former Employee - Intern in Holyoke, MA
    Former Employee - Intern in Holyoke, MA

    I worked at ISO New England

    Pros

    I worked as an intern, and everyone in my department was available to clarify my doubts and supported me while learning the job.

    Cons

    None really, in my experience it was a great place to work, even if temporarily. One could argue that the pay was not exceptional, but surely in line with the industry.

    No Growth Space. It is a good place for people approaching the end of career life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to give the young employees space to grow.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, very secure job. Experience varies significantly by manager. Yearly bonuses are very consistent.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is difficult. Some managers are not very good, better off as technical leads rather than managing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career path development and promote people who understand how to manage people instead of being based on seniority

    Interesting Challenging Work for Fair Pay, Some Weak Leadership Backbone, Less Personal as Growing

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Holyoke, MA
    Current Employee - Software Developer in Holyoke, MA

    I have been working at ISO New England full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting Technical Challenges
    Dynamic evolving business with steady stream of work
    Smart people to work with and learn from
    Fair pay

    Cons

    Political forces outside the business drive management decisions
    Lack of management backbone to stand up for right decisions
    Too many managers, not enough leadership
    Not much esprit de corps
    Some groups are better to work in than others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let small factions of market participants drive decisions which benefit only a small minority. raise the bar for middle managers to learn and practice better leadership. Solicit input on problems from the lowest levels. Middle managers are not representing problems accurately. Reward professional courage, risk taking, and excellence; take action against cowardice and self-protective behavior among your middle managers. Support your technical experts by giving them the time to expand their professional skills outside of the workplace.
