    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and willingness to educate employees that should an initiative to grow. Got to meet some great minds and big on safety.

    Cons

    The mixture between two companies can make the specifics of certain documentation troubling at times. Not sure if it's possible to actually advance beyond a particular site.

    Advice to Management

    I have none, I just wish I was still apart of the company

    I worked at NAES full-time

    Pros

    Location, Decent Pay (though below average for Seattle area)

    Cons

    Misleading. For as much as I was recruited....recruited to work there, the position I was hired in was not what I expected (payroll specialist). It was so easy it was boring but instead of being rewarded for efficiency, you are reprimanded. Compensation below regional average for the as well, and considering cost of living in metro Seattle that's a joke. Also believe hiring way too many people too fast. You are losing plants, thus losing work. Its a dangerous sign of a lack of job security.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with your treatment and stop with the cronyism,

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

    Pros

    We moved over to NAES as our employer at the plant recently and the difference is significant. We feel valued and the support we get from other groups is great. Our last operator provided no support and we could not call anyone to address environmental questions and every step was taken to cut benefits and make money off of our hard work. I feel NAES listens and am very thrilled with the move. Provides opportunities to move among numerous plants if desired.

    Cons

    None really to speak of only wish they would have taken over sooner and that we don't lose them at end of contract.

    Advice to Management

    Go after more plants operated by competitors and use the employees like us to help make sure the Owners keep you involved.

    New Supervisor, has came in and totally uplifted the atmosphere and is firm advocate in a healthy work life balance. The payroll department is now full of opportunity and growth.

    Cons

    None - I love my job...

    Advice to Management

    You did good - hiring the new Payroll Supervisor.

    Pros

    NAES offers a great work life balance. This company that continues to grow. With the company’s growth, I am challenged in my job and continue to obtain new skills. I don’t feel stagnate in my job and am excited to come to work. They have still maintained a family atmosphere while with the accelerated growth. Over all a great company to work for.

    Cons

    With the growth comes some challenges, but every company encounters challenges. I feel helps me increase my opportunities and increase my skills.

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work for NAES.

    Cons

    NAES does not care about their employees and their families, only about their client. You will deal with abuse and intimidation regularly as an employee of NAES.

    Advice to Management

    All of your employees are unhappy, it's not just me.
    Morale at the Linden Cogen Plant is at an all time low and getting worse every day. Give your employees the pay rate and respect they deserve.

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Challenging work load that keeps me busy and motivated
    Awesome Eastside location

    Cons

    Lots of corporate churn
    Lack of flexible work hours results in excessive employee turnover
    Lower pay scale makes employee retention more difficult
    Reductions in benefits hasn't been off-set with additional compensation (resulting in my net take-home from this job smaller)

    Advice to Management

    Stop building walls... literally, you've built yourselves a corporate castle with private bathroom and kitchen while packing the rest of the worker bees into tiny (loud) cubicles. Quit reducing benefits and trying to spin it positive.

    Pros

    Many opportunities with the industry given the company's many locations.

    Cons

    Leadership is completely disconnected from the employees and are not communicating a consistent strategy across the organization. The leaders appear to be benefiting at the expense of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop writing positive reviews on Glassdoor to counteract the negative ones written by actual employees.
