Pros

This is a utility, which offers a stable and secure work place. The percentage basis of 401K contribution is comparatively high, but by the time you consider the lower wages, the contribution ends up being the same as other places of employment.

Cons

pay and benefits are far below par. It si said, they do market analysis, but other places in the area pay about 2X, others off 90% insurance coverage, while NWE offers 75%. Others offer 4 to 6 weeks vacation, NWE offers 3. Others offer AD&D at no cost.

Advice to Management

Get pay and benefits up to retain workers long term. I believe this would also help attract more qualified people.

    You may have supervisor that is not easy to work with. No freedom to be creative. Wages start out low. If you don't have a degree you probably will never work there
