    I worked at NAES full-time

    Pros

    Get exposed to a lot of differing power plant technology, and are given "opportunities" to perform work and have responsibilities well above employment level very quickly. This is good for when you are ready to find a new job.

    Cons

    The added work responsibilities do not come with promotion opportunities. You just get paid the same to take on more than you are being compensated for. Travel expectations vary based on Manager, but can be told to travel outside of normal working hours with little to no compensation given to make up for extra hours worked. If you are a woman, you really don't have much of a chance at succeeding here. Managers are allowed to make inappropriate comments/threats without any real repercussions. I seriously think they are due for a lawsuit based on the harassment and inaction by HR.

    Advice to Management

    NAES has so much potential, but they don't do anything to keep good employees. Pay your people the industry standard, and move into the 21st century with your antiquated policies. People in this generation expect some sort of work life balance, and the idea that someone working there should not care about how their home life is ridiculous.

    I have been working at NAES full-time

    Pros

    12 hour shift work, 7 day weeks, company promotes from within usually.

    Cons

    Takes forever for the company to hire new people. Working 20+ days in a row (besides the hours you need off to go from nights to days) isn't abnormal

    Advice to Management

    Hire people faster


  7. Decent company

    I worked at NAES full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good history and many great former executives. Average salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Not much chance for advancement unless you are in the men's club. Women in management are scarce and there are no women executives. The current executive management doesn't seem to value the average employee, nor appreciate what they give to the company. It's all about the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and take them seriously. Without your people, you don't exist.

    I worked at NAES full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Best 401K match that I've seen in the industry. Management was always accommodating and easy to work with. The sky is the limit, but you have to be willing to move because there are only 30 or so employees at each power plant.

    Cons

    Rotating shift work. Gossip and rumors were an issue. Personality conflicts between various coworkers caused unwanted tension.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! I am very appreciative of everything management did for employees.
