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

    Pros

    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. Your position is truly what you make it. We have a great team. The benefits package and 401k match is above average. I truly enjoy coming to work.

    Cons

    None - I love my job...

    Advice to Management

    You did good - hiring the new Payroll Supervisor.

    I have been working at NAES full-time

    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.

    I have been working at NAES full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at NAES full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary; great benefits; work/life balance; cricket, volleyball and golf teams (have you ever worked at a company that has an annual cricket match, volleyball team AND a golf team?!); picnics at Mariners games; never go hungry with the amount of times that lunch is catered; newly renovated office space; new technology; involved with decision making. Open communication and meetings focused on how we can make improvements and fix areas that need fixing.

    Cons

    I haven't experienced any cons yet. No one is perfect, so I'm not saying that NAES Corp. doesn't have its faults. I just don't know what they are yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing with innovating and listening to the little people.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good pay, average benefits, site management cares

    Cons

    corporate management out-of-touch with individual sites, difficult balance between corporate and client

    Advice to Management

    In regards to benefit package: it's not a race to the bottom when competing with other firms for clients. If client wants skill and integrity - they'll pick NAES.

    I worked at NAES full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are better than most companies

    Cons

    Old school, no one ever leaves so nothing changes, management favors certain employees, even though those employees don't know how to do their job. No flexible hours, no working from home, lots of traveling, and pay isn't very good

    Advice to Management

    Do nothing and continue to find the employees that are inefficient and old school like your company is
    Do something and listen to your valuable employees and turn the place around to make it a place where people want to work

    I have been working at NAES full-time

    Pros

    There are Standard benefits and matching

    Cons

    NAES has somehow convinced their customers that they are more than a temp agency. They are not. People in plants are commodities like pumps and motors. HQ support staff has high turnover. Competitors have undercut the high overhead costs. If you are considering a job in a plant make sure you know when the contract is up.

    Advice to Management

    Go look. Get out of the HQ vacuum.
