This is a contract position. The best explanation is the ability to help the workers and halt the stress and strain on the aging workforce. When the worker says that is great, I feel better, I can really use that type of procedure and technique and apply it immediately. We have been seeking this type of health benefit for our company.

IT Consultant (in-house) (Current Employee) – Berlin, CT – October 24, 2015
Overall, I find it very rewarding to provide electricity and gas to our community. I have worked with some innovated technologies and great people. I am constantly solving problems that make a difference.
Since the merger, morale has deteriorated. Budgets and staffing levels decreased. Workloads increased. We have been assigned some ambitious projects with uncomfortably aggressive deadlines. Contractors are used frequently.
IT was outsourced, and nearly 50% of IT staff was let go in 2014.
Be prepared, you will do storm support and on-call support. I worked over 12 hours a day until power is restored which was several days. In my area of IT, I am on-call 7x24 for up to 180 days a year. Storm duty and on-call are unpaid, but your salary and bonuses are above average to make up for this.
Another challenge/opportunity is many of the remaining IT leadership will be retiring over the next 2 to 5 years. The good news is plenty opportunities for advancement for ambitious, skilled, IT leader. The downside is a large amount of experience and historical knowledge will be leaving.
Rewarding, good & bright colleagues, above average salary & benefits
team have small numbers of member & no depth, on-call, outsourced IT, stress
A nice place to work but I somehow worked my way out of the job. I would have liked being employed here longer. The most enjoyable part of this job were the people in the Distributive services department.
Human Resource Representative (Current Employee) – Manchester, NH – September 16, 2015
Everyone helps everyone whenever needed. Employees are always saying "good morning" or "Hi" to you whether they know you or not. Very friendly company and inviting. I work with a very supportive staff where we all became very good friends. We could laugh and joke or cry on someone's shoulder if needed for support. However, with a company reorg, my position is being eliminated and I am transitioning out through the end of this year.
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.
Customer Service Rep 4 (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT – July 16, 2015
No life/ work balance, micromanagement is ridiculous- literally every second of your work day has to be accounted for and Lord forbid you have to use the bathroom outside of your break. The pay and benefits were awesome, but it wasn't worth it.
Short lunch, long days, micromanagement, mandatory OT
Distribution system operator (Current Employee) – Berlin Ct – July 6, 2015
Eversource has been a great company to work for. They provide excellent benefits, competitive pay, and a dynamic work environment. All of the co-workers and supervisors are very knowledgable and experienced.
Network Analyst/Engineer (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Westwood, MA – April 26, 2015
I was considering a fulltime position but after three months I discovered it would be best to move on. Too much uncertainty and instability after merger with office staff reductions and office closings, consolidations, etc.
Gas Supply Co-op (Former Employee) – Westwood, MA – April 9, 2015
Eversource Energy is the power house of New England. As a well established company, there isn't much room for innovation or new ideas. It is mostly the logistical work of how to keep the lights on. Can be rewarding, the people are great, and the benefits are too.
