    Started with high hopes and left shaking my head.

    Assistant Project Manager (Current Employee) Peoria, AZ

    ProsNew equipment and tools for employees. Training was very good and often.

    ConsManagement clueless of what goes on around them and fails to have any kind of backbone. Too many rules and regulations. NPL = No Personal Life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and communication would really help.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No thanks

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWas great with previous CEO.

    ConsNo work/life balance. No work from home. Vacation is combined with sick. Everyone comes in when they are sick and spreads it to everyone in office.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A lot of personality politics

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLong term slow growth corporate philosophy with an emphasis on responding to identified trouble areas. Company promotes through all levels from within.

    ConsManagement preoccupied with maximizing annual bonuses vs. net outlay for facilities, equipment & employee provisions & perks. A lot of "Who can pee higher up on the hydrant" games. Initial emphasis of responding to identified problems is undercut by tendency toward complacency toward such problems once the microscope moves on; also tends to avoid identifying potential problems unless and until becoming actual issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate should adopt across the board (national) policies to which all divisions practice & adhere. Should stop waiting until OSHA or DOT is breathing down their necks to address problems. Standing on the union contracted minimum wages isn't making NPL look like an industry leader; lot of good people have left because they went too long without a raise. Experience should count.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Hard work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAt NPL the chances for advancement are high to become a laborer or management laborers are union and make a good amount of money

    ConsIt takes awhile to advance. You work hard for little pay working outside in all types of weather, rain, snow heat or the cold

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer the little guys a little more pay for what they do. It is not an easy job this job is not for everyone
