    Good pay, high turnover

    Pros

    Niagara does offer high pay and solid benefits. The employees are good people. The work environment is generally enjoyable on a daily basis.

    Cons

    However, turnover rate is alarming. This family owned company gives preferential treatment to the Cutler family and their friends and everyone else is considered expendable. Even VP or director-level positions are prone to unexpected terminations. It is common to get an email out of the blue informing everyone that any given employee has suddenly been let go. When things go wrong, they can’t fire a Cutler, or a family friend, which means that everyone else faces a disproportionate level of scrutiny. The company games the system a little bit to chase “Great Place to Work” designation, which is used to cover up some of the underlying dysfunction and continue to attract fresh talent to replace the ones that are let go. For all of the above reasons, the company is prone to workplace drama and upheaval that does not exist in larger, more stable companies that are not family-run.

    Pros

    You will a lot about how communication is so important.

    Cons

    If you have an idea it usually gets shot down. Management is constantly looking for mistakes. They expect you to be a yes man. Not Covid safe at all. If you wear a mask in the office you get looks. Still had gatherings and let people out in the field come in the office with out a Covid test non stop. Work here if you are a puppet. Nepotism is an understatement. If you aren't friends of the owner's family or in the family you are automatically frowned upon and not taken seriously. MOST IMPORTANTLY- They are not a green company. They just say that to get a sale or suck people in who actually want to try to make a difference in the world. There is way more...

    The job market is too good to waste your time here!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Layed back casual environment where you don't have to work if you don't choose to because HR has a puzzle for you to do.

    Cons

    Niagara is a family owned and operated company whose only concern is more money in their pockets. This is great but they need to be honest and not hire people under false pretenses which they always do. If you are not a family member, family friend, or close confident of the family you will not be successful at Niagara. The average tenure at Niagara is 3 years so don’t waste your time here when there are so many better opportunities in today’s job market. 22 of the 66 employees have left Niagara in the last 18 months because of the company culture and lack of respect by Niagara owners and executives. A large majority of the employees who have left were educated professionals in higher up positions like VP positions all the way down to customer service and the warehouse. The majority of people who work at Niagara are not higher educated which may be why executives treat us the way they do. This is not a great place to work and has only been given the award the last 2 years because if you didn’t complete the survey you continued receiving emails reminding you to do so. Employees felt pressured to keep their jobs so they did the survey because if it was an anonymous survey no one would have known who had or hadn’t completed it. If you like surveys, there’s never a shortage because Niagara uses them instead of face to face communication with employees. Niagara boosts values that they in no way stand behind. There isn’t a bit of integrity in any of the actions by this company. To avoid defamation claims this will be left here but know if you’re a person with morals and a conscious this isn’t the company for you. They use their employees until they are no longer of any use and then dispose of them as if they were never vital in change or growth.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. While HR has a puzzle for employee's to work on, it is there to create team building and a time for you as individual to get to know other teammates. It is not there for you not to work, that would be a very distorted misconception of why the puzzle has been provided. I would like to encourage you to speak directly with the HR Manager before making a blanket statement that HR does not work for all employee's but rather just for the executives and owners. I believe Niagara Conservation has just hired a new HR Manager - it may be worth it for you to speak 'face to face' with HR versus communicating via this platform. Changes cannot be made if HR does not know of the issues.

    Think Twice Before Working At Niagara Conservation

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There aren't a lot of pros... unless you are one of the favorites. The people you MAY work with can be great but other people in other departments are questionable. You get the chance to play shuffleboard and drink while at work but when it comes to any kind of career growth - think twice.

    Cons

    HR doesn't know what they are doing. Nepotism at its finest and not everyone is held to the same standards.

    Where to start...

    Pros

    There are a couple of gems that work at this place, but none that stick around too long. Very casual work environment. You have great job security if you’re a friend/family member of a manager or director. Food is always available if you like it handed to you on specific days and times like you are in kindergarten.

    Cons

    Nepotism at its finest. Not everyone is held to the same standards AT ALL. It’s unbelievable this hasn’t changed in so many years. These positive reviews are laughable - all newbies that were probably asked to leave a review by HR for an extra snack at snack time. Some of the most recent 5 star reviews have already quit. If you really want the truth talk to an ex employee- not these fake 5 star reviews.
