Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
NSP was a really good company to work for. Good wages and benefits. But I suffered in the work/life balance area. The management team tries their hardest to be accommodating.

Good Pay but bad for health

Made above average wage with good benefits and a shares option. Schedule for Power Engineers is great (4/6). Unfortunately, with the transition away from coal the experience in the generating stations is going downhill fast. Seem to be taking every opportunity to shed "extra" union personnel so retraining costs are mitigated. Lots of investigations and even spying by corporate security have been reported. They have senseless sick time policies and will request Dr's notes even if you don't break them. Funny thing is most of the issues seem to be generated by middle management and not upper management who have done a better than expected job of being transparent during early stages of transition.All that being said, co-workers working on the transmission side seem to have far more favourable opinions.

Pros

Wage and Schedule

Cons

Culture

Depends on the departement, the manager, and avilable work at the time

Depends on your attitude and what you are looking for out of your career, if you want an 8-4 job without caring for what you do or be part of the decision making proces, doing the right thing by customers, etc... then this is the right job for you if you can push back on being bullied to do more than is fair.

Pros

good pay, benefits and best in NS

Cons

toxic enviroment, very competitive, manupulative management

Okay not the best

Dirty plants and bad work conditions for long term health. The company needs new management fresh ideas and a culture change .I would stay clear of these plants no long term future in coal fired generation.
