Pros

Relative to other places to work in Vermont, Northern Power is great. It's probably the best employer in Central Vermont. Good benefits, good pay, friendly people, lots of stuff going on. A really interesting place to work. And it feels good working in alternative energy.

Cons

Wind isn't doing great as an industry. Money is tight and management is sometimes penny wise but pound foolish. Management doesn't necessarily have the technical acumen to really understand what's going on, which is unfortunate because the products are so high-tech and cutting-edge. Office politics can be an issue. Promotions can be based on seniority more than merit.

Advice to Management

Offer promotions on merit, not seniority. Spend a little more on stuff that matters and a little less on pompous executives.

    Management only cares about themselves. Defeinitely a corporate minded company

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the needs and desires of your production employees. They are the reason you have the product ready to ship out for your orders.
