Pros

The vast majority of the employees are very skilled and dedicated to their jobs. A real pleasure to work with.

Cons

Management at the corporate office is not in touch with branch office needs. On the customer side of things this used to be very customer oriented operation, now it's a cold, uncaring service provider. On the employee side they have cut a lot of positions only to hire people back on contract without benefits.

Advice to Management

Cummins NPower management needs to realize that what works in Minneapolis isn't necessarily the best thing in De Pere, WI. Their "Big City" attitude doesn't play well in small town Wisconsin.
Learn who your customers are and quit micro-managing your local branch managers. Full time employees with benefits are far more productive and loyal than temps and contractors

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Organization is developing, becoming more progressive. There are many opportunities to contribute and make improvements in many areas. Generally, culture is very professional and capable. Salaries are not exceptional, but in my opinion, they're fair.

    Cons

    Org. is open to new ideas, but is very slow to adopt improvements. Sometimes the org. settles for "that's the way it's been done" instead of "there is a better way of doing things."

    Advice to Management

    Lead more boldly. Push hard on the organization to adopt best practices. Listen to the experts and trust the data.
