    Great Place to Work

    Pros

    Impressive benefits - Reasonable compensation - Lots of autonomy - Strong leadership - Intelligent and caring colleagues Great company to work for and will stay as long as possible! Very positive culture here. My manager trusts in me, and that has made my confidence grow tremendously. We like to celebrate holidays here! This celebrating and sense of family creates that strong culture. There are a few people here that really have made an impact on my time here and show who Niagara is and stands for. The culture is laid back, but professional when it's the time.

    Cons

    One of the top dogs can be more approachable.

    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...

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    Great opportunity with a company with great potential

    Pros

    The new products the company has introduced within the last few years are revolutionary and the company growth potential could be unlimited. This basically is a 30 + year old company that is still going through start-up pains.The senior management team is young & inexperienced so there have been numerous mistakes made (as many of the company reviews reflect). However, things have improved within the last year and the management team seems to be making a real effort to finally learn from their mistakes they have made in the past.

    Cons

    This is not a 9 - 5 job. If this is the type of job you are looking for, then this is not the company for you. Your work is expected to be completed to meet deadlines and to put as many hours as needed to get the job done. Staffing in most departments is at a bare minimum as is the case in most small growing companies so employees need to be able to multi-task.

    Great to work for a company that contributes to saving the worlds most precious resource WATER

    Pros

    Great group of employees, everyone is very friendly. I've been here for a few years now and everyday it seems like the culture is improving. I enjoy coming to work every day knowing that we are really making an impact in the world by conserving water. The products we manufacture are the best in the industry. They just hired a new manager that I really enjoy working with. Management has improved drastically over the past year. If you are looking for a sales job I highly recommend this company. The drought through out the country is opening a ton of opportunities for this company to move a lot of product. In most areas the utilities are offering rebates, you'll basically be selling toilets for free!!

    Cons

    The company needs to improve on its communication. At times I feel like not everyone is on the same page. They are starting to put SOP in place which will help drastically.
