    Pros

    OK Company, they are just ok not setting the industry on fire

    Cons

    Very PC minded, letting the underperformers run the company...very hesitant about "New Ideas" in management....will stabb you in the back if you are not a "Yes Man"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to review the people that are in charge

    Pros

    The people really make the company. With plenty of contacts across the country, there is always someone to help with difficult issues. The salary is fair for the work, and the benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Seems to be stagnant, making enough revenue to keep afloat, but not enough to expand. Many are stretched thin across several projects.

    Pros

    Loved meeting all of the customers

    Cons

    Sales department was horrible as only one of them knew how to sell anything. If they couldnt pull it off the shelf; they couldnt sell it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people you pay good money too.

    I worked at NWN Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people in many places in the company. Not a lot of supervision. Easy to skate if you're that type of person.

    Cons

    Company management provides very little direction and all offices operate differently. Very few processes and growth strategy wasn't defined. Long hours and tough working environment due to politics and lack of defined roles and responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a competitive comp. package fo employees, not just sales. Recommend senior management occasionally visit an office and actually talk to the employees.

    I have been working at NWN Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and ok salary. CEO of the company interacts with every employee of the company and suggestions are widely open in the company. around 600 people in the company but being run like a small start up which is very good

    Cons

    Need a strong management strategy for good growth vision in all sectors of the company. Dont have a bonus structure, no additional perks, no company stocks. Very expensive healthcare plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have a good management in every sectors of the company. Company need to invest in have a good leader at the top with good vision and experience in the industry. Design a better benefits package (bonus, stocks) for service delivery people not just for sales. A better Insurance policy would attract more employee and retain existing.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very collaborative, very helpful. Salaries need to be higher.

    Cons

    Company reputation in emerging marketplace is weak and has experience some bad press in the past -- hence poses some problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Determine a consolidated and unified corporate approach that encompasses ALL aspects of services. Too silo'ed, as is.
