    I have been working at National Grid USA (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ice Cream Parties, and the best of a work-life balance!

    Cons

    Old systems and slow software can make your work ethic feel under-utilized.
    Working with senior union members can be difficult at times as the 'process has been done this way for xx years'.

    Pros

    The co-workers / overall staff are great people. The pay and benifits , decent.

    Cons

    No clear direction from senior level Mgmt. Although they make profits each year it was decided to outsource IS. Slashing jobs and outsourcing is all they seem to know how to do.

    Advice to Management

    It would be cheaper and more productive to outsource YOU !!
