Analyst Corporate Systems-IT (Current Employee) –  Orange, CTJune 4, 2018
I used to be very busy at first, now that the company merged with UIL Holdings everything changed. I don't like the structure very much, and the work load is not the same.

Purchasing Analyst Contractor (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYMay 3, 2018
Avangrid is very flexible with their hours and they value your personal time and life outside of work. While at work, it encourages employees to work harder. Everyone at Avangrid helped to create a helpful and productive workplace where everyone worked together and got along.

A complete mess
Meter Reader (Former Employee) –  Mechanicville, NYFebruary 23, 2018
Terrible place to work because everyone is miserable and bored. Everyone there is worried about advancement and there is none. No supervision and everyone just wants to make others look bad to get ahead.

A strong utility mindset prevails
Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 22, 2018
Simplistic utility thinking guides the organization. If it's not a regulated entity with guaranteed rates of return that scares them too much.

There is not much more to say about this company other than what is above.
Pros
Relaxed Pace
Cons
If you're not part of the utility there is no opportunity for advancement.

good place for entery level
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYJanuary 7, 2018
good place for entry level but too many old timers (20-30 years plus) therefore, advancement is about who you know, and not qualifications, leadership skills and experience. Company is going through acquisition, and planning multiple more, and this is without flexible, forward thinking leadership.
Pros
good pay
Cons
lack of challenging work

Understaffed and overworked
Professional (Current Employee) –  USAAugust 9, 2017
After several M&As, ended up working for this company. Since the most recent M&A, the only decent jobs are at company HQ in CT, even though its subsidiaries work in at least a couple dozen states across the US. The CT management fires very good people for no good reason, and hires people who know nothing about the industry to take their place.

Corporate does not seem interested in what the subsidiaries do, which is too bad, because they all provide an essential service - either electricity or gas - to their customers. Corporate likes to squeeze as much as they can out of every employee for the minimum amount of money spent.

The company gets so bogged down in the weeds of "processes" that it is nearly impossible to actually accomplish anything (despite regular 60+ hour weeks). The company's claims about work-life balance are a joke. It is so understaffed that in some areas, no one has been allowed to take any time off for months. Meanwhile, the people over at "big" corporate parent across the ocean are taking all of August off for "holiday."

Very diverse culture (one of this company's only attributes). Pay is okay, not great, and there are decent benefits. Vacation time is fairly allocated, yet many people, particularly long-time employees, end up not being able to take their allotment due to workload and you are very limited in what you can carry over year to year.

Pray you don't get seriously ill as sick time is very limited and also cannot be carried over.
Pros
Diverse culture
Cons
Severely understaffed, overworked, bogged down in process minutia

Nothing special or exciting to keep you wanting to go to work
Solar Technician (Former Employee) –  ColoradoJuly 11, 2017
Company is very slow about everything. Safety oriented to the max which is great. Benefits and pay are great but the overall culture is discouraging and not worth the money. Engineering seemed to lack the skill to effectively assist the plants.
Pros
100% paid benefits competitive pay
Cons
SLOW moving company nothing happens until Spain and now New York approves.

Quality & Environmental Manager (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 6, 2017
Avangrid started out as a great company, but through the years it has changed ownership, gotten larger, and as this has happened, the things that once made us great have faded to the background.

It is still a good company to work for, with great benefits, and really good people. It has just been disheartening to watch greatness fade before actually reaching our potential.
