People who work at the company like that "Eversource values their people and provides opportunities for growth," and "despite going through a significant merger, they operate at a pace that adequately drives change without creating chaos amongst the business." Some note that the company is large, and "sometimes the right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing," and "many benefits have been reduced since the merger," but others highlight the "job security," "intelligent, hard-working" people, and "challenging and rewarding" work. – less
