    Pros

    Really good at what they do. Sales Management can be trusted

    Cons

    overlapping sales territories. Not much else... it is a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at NWN Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good leadership and vision, excellent engineers. Well regarded by their vendor partners (Cisco, NetApp, etc). Competes effectively in the Boston market, but even better elsewhere. Compensation and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    I was in sales, but after many years working for manufacturers I decided that the VAR sales role wasn't for me. Nothing against the company, just not what I wanted to do.

    Advice to Management

    They need to invest more in the Boston market to compete more effectively with larger like firms.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NWN Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You definitely get to work with the most recent technology. As a solutions engineer billable hours are the name of the game. Keep your head down and bill ... bill ... bill ...

    Cons

    Frequent change in management. Company focus and direction doesn't always filter down from the C level folks. Despite an extensive process you are often not prepared for the job you are sent out on.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the little people instead of the squeaky wheels.

    Pros

    Great people with a great work ethic. Plan accordingly to up coming projects with no mistakes. have meeting that involve that company as a whole. Relaxed work environment but understand when its time to work and get things done.

    Cons

    slow some parts of the year, not much room for growth, slow learning curve, wont really understand whats going on unless properly trained. you can work as hard as you want but not many people will the work so nothing will come of it.

    I have been working at NWN Corporation full-time

    Pros

    NWN offers a pretty good benefits package. Sometimes they have free meals. Work from home occasionally.

    Cons

    Management and Senior Management are absolutely horrible. You are hired as a salaried employee, yet treated hourly. They hire people who are in capable of doing the job, as a result there is more work for the rest of the employees. Inconstant training methods. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give certain people special treatment. Offer better training methods. Offer opportunities for people to move ahead. Lessen the stress and burden of the job for people.

    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 Management

    Senior Management needs to review the people that are in charge

    I have been working at NWN Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Good hardworking people trying to do the right thing everyday.

    Cons

    none to speak of, the company has worked hard to create a team culture with good benefits. With growth comes challenges and NWN has worked hard to overcome them.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work
