I have been working at New York Power Authority as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Lots of projects to work on as an intern.
-Friendly atmosphere and helpful fellow employees.
-Location was a great.

Cons

-Being paired with some of the bigger names in the company can often lead to long gaps of distance between the intern and employer. For instance, my adviser was often away on travel, and this sometimes hindered advancement on project work.

Advice to Management

-Management was very loosely based, so perhaps have advisers schedule weekly meetings to ensure progress is being achieved.

    Pros

    People are really nice and friendly for the most part
    Good location for younger employees
    Fairly relaxed work environment
    Environmentally green building

    Cons

    While the people are friendly they are not always the brightest
    Since it is related to the state government, rules are extremely strict and very institutional feeling

    Advice to Management

    As a former intern, it should be leaderships first and foremost goal to breed great workers and get them to matriculate after their internships. They seem to drop the ball on the latter part

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at New York Power Authority full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Used to have flexible working hours but that changes regularly. No more pension either. 10 days holidays. 20 days vacation plus 4 floating days.

    Cons

    Politics and nepotism have ruined NYPA. Add in the CEO and COO who couldn't manage a kindergarten and you get the idea.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let someone competent take over. Please.
