Engineer (Current Employee) – WPO/NIA/CEC – October 17, 2017
Friends & family plan is the way to go. Union no doubt runs the show and most of the management is to far up the kissing tree to see this. If considering career here go to union side not management. Union brothers look out for their own....management is out for themselves and will step over you and not look back.
Great pay and benefits
WPO is too far away to really see what is going on....
Project Management Developmental Intern (Former Employee) – Massena, NY – October 4, 2017
This internship was the highlight of all my internships. I was able to see things that I have never seen before, and that most people wont see. I loved that summer, but would not go back due to personal goals/reasons.
Energy Services Contract Manager (Former Employee) – White Plains, NY – September 28, 2017
A typical day at the New York Power Authority, if you are not in sales or management, is not very challenging. Coming from the private sector, I couldn't understand why things were done the way they are, but learned it's just the "public sector".
Saving grace was having outstanding managers who were interested in their team members, friendly, helpful, and met weekly with me allowing me to manage my time and work product. I felt valued.
That said, I would recommend NYPA to anyone who likes slow-paced "government" work that provides average benefits from what I understand. Not for everyone.
PFJ Analytical Associate (Former Employee) – White Plains, NY – June 29, 2017

Contract Corporate Recruiter (Current Employee) – White Plains, NY – April 24, 2017
The New York Power Authority has a culture that is very special. Everyone there is simply a pleasure to work with. The jobs to recruit for are far than typical due to the excellence that The New York Power Authority demands, however that just makes the job that much more challenging and rewarding.
Operating Technician (Current Employee) – Astoria, NY – March 13, 2017
This company has great a compensation package and the people are great to work with. The unit I work with has given me the opportunity to learn several different systems and extend my knowledge significantly
Auditor (Current Employee) – White Plains, NY – January 24, 2017
Do not work for the internal audit department. 1. Management is more concerned with meeting self recognition goals than the team 2. Management is untrustworthy and make considerable efforts to create a culture is mis-trust among the team members 3. Management does not know how to audit - out of all the employees in the department, they are the weakest (yes - management) 4. Retaliatory behavior by management 5. 1/3 of team team left within 1 year (1/2 of those that left were management 6. Management is aware of significant issues and even fraud and has done nothing because they are worried about advancing their own careers
Sustainability Intern (Former Employee) – White Plains, NY – November 14, 2016
This is a great place to work if you are interested in the energy industry/government/public policy. Compensation is great compared to other government positions. Very much a 9-5 work culture which makes for great work life balance.
Not very fast paced for those beginning their career
Developmental Electrical Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Astoria, NY – October 19, 2015
By far the best internship I have ever had. Everyone is willing to help but they will not give you the answer. They teach you how to network and use your resources to get things done on your own the right way. And the managers are truly awesome and the true definition of what management should be. Nothing bu the best.
