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

    Pros

    Its a job that pays well

    Cons

    Went from having a great sick leave program and went to pto. They only added 2 days to pto to make up for the 18+ days of sick disability they took away. The company is no longer a leader in the industry. Now they screw their employees to save a buck. Terrible...

    Advice to Management

    Either bring back sick disability or increase the pto hours to better compensate for what has been taken away. 2 day...really? Terrible

    Pros

    Good benefits , decent pay

    Cons

    Had good benefits but the company changed its policy to screw literally everyone in the company

    The most bipolar management I've ever met in the industry

    Pros

    It is a job, and I enjoy the onsite people I work with

    Cons

    Parent company is disconnected with plants. They say the employees are the greatest asset but employees get treated poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your greatest asset better; the employees.

    Pros

    This is a pretty good company to work for, they seem to genuinely care about their people and treat them well.

    Cons

    When you work for a third party contractor like NAES, sometimes the asset owners overstep their boundaries and try to micromanage you instead of going through the chain of command. That's what happened at Sandy Creek, in my opinion. You end up having several different bosses when you direct boss can't or won't stand up to the owners group.

    Pros

    uhhhh, it's a paycheck. I don't what else to say about this company. It's not like you are part of something with them.

    Cons

    Hmm, they recently changed the benefit package and the dopes that didn't abuse their sick time now have it all taken away while those who did abuse it made out like bandits. NAES is a people company and I don't mean that in a good way. They are in the business of supplying bodies to powerplants and really don't care who or what those bodies are. They have a large number of middle management though and they probably have a good deal and really do not support the powerplants so I don't really understand what they actually do.
