Stable to Unstable
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Wilmington, MAJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: benefits are very high
I left a company that had stable work with unlimited overtime for NStar after they informed me that it was originally perm., then temp to perm, then after I had already left my previous company, it was contract. Three months after starting this job I worked night shift, came home, was called by my "supervisor" three hours after going to bed and told – more... that the contract was cancelled, I would get my last pay check in the mail, sorry, and we'll be placing you inactive. Essentially laying me off...oh, by the way, this was a week before the holidays. – less

Use to be good company
PMT (Former Employee), Mesa, AZAugust 5, 2013
Pros: entry level job positioning in semi-conductor industry
Cons: pay, benefits, communication with their employees, review compensation, not many contacts
I worked for NSTAR Global Services for 5 1/2 years as a contractor for Applied Materials. They were good when I first started working for them as they were a small company and we had weekly pay. Then they merged with M&W Group. Ever since then, I've noticed the company going down hill. The regional managers are not involved enough with their employees – more... so it makes it hard to build a good relationship with the company. The medical insurance they provide is horrible and very expensive. They don't reach out to their employees when they need a job even though you try to reach out to them.

I've had the opportunity to work on a project with M&W group and it was terrible. The manager assigned to the project was young and did not posses any good management skills. Anyone in a position of management that throws tools around in a warehouse creating an unsafe work environment, does not deserve to be a manager.

It was clear to me that this NSTAR does not care about their employees as they have ditched me without any communication to me about being dropped from them, I found out by not being able to log into my NSTAR email account. This is a sad action from a company that claims to be a "great company to work for". They under pay their employees while NSTAR makes all the profits from you working your butt off. In the five years I worked for them, I received only a $1.00 raise, even though my reviews were above average and I was an exceptional employee.

I will never work for NSTAR Global Services again and hope their business fails because good hard working people do not deserve to be kicked to the curb. Thanks for nothing NSTAR! – less

Get in get out & don't look back!
RESOURCE ENGINEER (Former Employee), Malta, NYMarch 28, 2012
Pros: employment
Cons: healthcare, biweekly pay
Pay is the primary reason most of us work so as long as you keep that in mind, this company is okay. Weekly pay check was the best part especially since you're reimbursed for food, gas, laundry etc after you come out of pocket first....BUT since they went to bi-weekly, it can get a little pretty pricey to eat & take care of your home obligations if – more... you're coming off any sort of work lapse or if it's your first assignment. – less

Typcial Work Conditions
Field Service Engineer III (Former Employee), 新竹市, HSZJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: work with expenses, challenging engineering conditions
Cons: not enough work
A typical day consisted of getting on the bus in the morning to the Powerchip facility. Where we did a morning safety briefing and then continued on with activities of deinstalling and decommissioning the tool that normally has a 10 man team to install it.
