    I have been working at NWN Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The office culture is one of the best that I've worked in. Everyone genuinely cares about each other. The atmosphere is relaxed and bosses don't micro-manage. This place never gets boring, because our business is always growing and evolving with the technology world.

    The employee benefits are great too, in my opinion. Ample PTO time and 401k matching.

    Cons

    If you don't like change, then this isn't the place for you. Change is always happening.

    NWN is a growing company working with the latest technology partners around. It's a great place for technical professionals to expand their career.

    Pros

    This is a high growth company that promotes heavily from within. Lots of opportunities to rapidly grow your career at NWN.

    Cons

    It’s real work and this is not the right fit for someone looking for an easy ride. You get what you put into this place unless you are in sales and then it’s a free ride.

    Advice to Management

    You should learn to appreciate more than a purchase order.

    Pros

    Just recently the CT office of NWN Corporation was ranked one of the Best Places To Work in CT for 50 employees and under. I have worked at several IT companies over my career including Cabletron and Cisco and I have found the culture at NWN to fit the best. The employees truly care about one another and provide continuous guidance and support. NWN is very much a family and team.

    Cons

    There are always ways to improve process. Having experience in this field for 25 years I have found that all companies face the same challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide guidance and support. Keep the teams apprised of changes within the organization and why those changes are made.

    Pros

    Company truly cares about employees, from founders through upper management and other leadership. Company supported me through a tough family member health issue and I've seen them do the same for others. Excellent vision toward the future and a plan to support that vision.

    Cons

    Pace of change can be a bit much for some and you will work hard. I enjoy working hard, others may not. Changes are all positive and support execution of the vision.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, stay the course and continue to be the ethical, game changing player in the marketplace.

    I worked at NWN Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allowed employees to work remotely. Good about training and flying to different locations for training.

    Cons

    Micromanaging team leads, disorganized, throw employees under the bus while on call with customers. Poor management and not enough resources for the amount of work. Horrible time card entry system.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a consultant to figure out the mess and maybe employee retention would be better.
