Suggestions for improvement

  • Better equipment (newer laptops, current software) would allow us to do our jobs more efficiently.

What I like about the company

The company offers many opportunities for advancement and equal opportunities for employees regardless of gender, race, or other differences.

What I dislike about the company

Location of main office is outside of our territory and despised by most everyone due to awful traffic at all times for the day (although the building itself is LEED certified and very nice).

Suggestions for improvement

  • My biggest complaint is the office location which was moved out of our service territory to be closer to Logan airport/Boston. The traffic and commute time is the biggest complaint of most everyone I work with. The second largest frustration is the lack of current IT equipment (laptops, software) that affect the ability to do your job well in less time.

What I like about the company

Many strong female leaders in upper management roles.

What I dislike about the company

Sense of complacency from folks who have worked there for decades.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Would be nicer to have personal offices. Sometimes the noise and bustle can be a bit distracting. If I could close my office door and put on so low music I could get so much more done

What I like about the company

I have had nothing but good experiences working there. Sometimes I get a heavy workload but I have a company laptop so I am able to finish at home which allows me time with my family.

What I dislike about the company

Only thing would be the inability for managers to be able to give raises anytime of the year and having to wait until the new fiscal year
