My tenure at Northeast Utilities (now Eversource) was a roller coaster, but also provided me with immense knowledge of PR and interviewing prowess.
daily basis, as well as senior management (Former Employee) – Berlin, CT – July 17, 2015
For more than 24 years I was a writer, editor and public relations spokesman. One of the finest parts of being with NU was interacting with all levels, from maintenance people to the CEO. Interviews, news releases, program development and other techniques were always a part of my daily existence there.
Management was demanding, though for a time it was fair, and that is all anyone can ask. There were some serious issues with one director in our department, though he ultimately took another position in another state. The opportunities for advancement were not good, which is why I finally decided to apply for the position at Saint Raphael's.
I would not have asked for better coworkers. They were a rock and we supported each other. My immediate supervisor was great, and all with whom I interacted over the years all over the company were dynamic and great to work with. It made coming to work very enjoyable, despite the constant challenge of trying to do the will of the department head.
