    Pros

    they produce a product you can believe in, and benefits are good

    Cons

    they demand excessive work hours and offer reasonable pay but then when you meet the criteria, they continue to demand more and more without offering the extra compensation

    Advice to Management

    Add more workers to the actual working crew and not just more managers so that the valuable few there aren't driven away because its just not worth it any longer. the managers make the most money but don't do any of the work. the workers stress themselves out trying to meet deadlines but aren't adequately compensated for their efforts

    Pros

    Office is in a nice location in Andover.

    Cons

    The Enel Control Room is treated like a second class department. Low salaries, increasing demands, constantly understaffed and poor leadership. The 12 hour weekend schedule will kill you. You just want to go home, eat and go to sleep. As if the schedule is not demanding enough, the listing indicates they may go to a rotating 12 hour schedule. If you want a life or have a family this is not the job for you. They are not kidding about mandatory overtime either. There is only one person per shift. When someone is on vacation or out sick they force you to work OT. They don't care about your life outside of Enel and show no appreciation for your sacrifices. The lack of employees puts a huge strain on everyone in the department. The main issue is that they do not pay a competitive salary and cannot attract any qualified employees. The listing indicates they want college educated applicants but none of the management in the Control Room are college educated. They have no training experience and hate to do it. The running theme in the department was if you had a question, you should "read the manual" because there is no training program. Watching 15 wind sites was demanding enough but now they are adding a dozen hydro sites with no additional employees or pay. Not an enjoyable environment to work in as there is a camera on you at all times and they track your key card closely and will question you if they see you were out of the room for more than a few minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the department and hire competent and qualified management. If you want to do that, you need to pay a fair salary. You have competition out there.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work life balance, and they require nothing out of there employees

    Cons

    Very political environment. You are feeding from the government trough and are no better than those who are welfare. It's doesn't matter how hard you work, just how good you are at playing their social game. You are surrounded by incompetent derelicts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so corrupt and do the right thing.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, depending on who you report to, great work life balance. You will work with extremely intelligent and experienced people. And you will learn so much about the green industry just through osmosis. They believe in hiring from within, so once you make it in, you can transition easily assuming you show the aptitude fro the work in question. Over-head, meaning, HR and the executive team, are very approachable. HR is frequently doing gestures of appreciation throughout the year. e.g., getting a small bonus 2 weeks before Christmas, (not related to your annual bonus) or getting a $25 gift card that can be used anywhere for a Turkey or Ham, right before Thanksgiving. The effort is definitely there. They even retro date annual merit increases, i.e., if you get your increase in March, you get the difference from January in your next paycheck, Pretty cool! Who does that? 401k match!!!!! Lastly, you get to work in the green industry for a company that works a huge variety of technologies, Hydro, Wind, Geothermal and Solar. We do novel things in our field, by combining technologies. It's truly motivating and inspiring. No matter what you do here, you'll feel like you're contributing to a better world.

    Cons

    The systems chosen such as an ERP or Signature Management, are terrible. They implement the base of base models and frequently shut the systems down for update, for days (work days) at a time. Once re-activated, seldom are the update useful and more often than not, more issues are created. To make any process improvements, even the smallest and logical of them, it takes forever because the solution proposed needs to approved by the powers that be in Rome Italy. You will get frustrated trying to comprehend why progress takes significantly longer than they should or why things are done with built in obsolescence. You will be optimistic for the first few months convincing yourself that you're different and you can develop solutions and ways of communicating solutions that no one else has thought of, but you'r wrong. We've all tried and now we just accept the unnecessary hassles and delays as quirks.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask for feedback unless you're willing to actually take it into consideration.
