Train Wreck
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYDecember 17, 2018
Senior leadership has absolutely no concern for their employees. They say that they want to hear form the employees but when the feedback honestly points out the failures, leadership stops communicating and goes radio silent. Human Resources holds the company hostage with their random changes and inability to complete their job but always able to blame others for their failure.

Work life balance is such a joke that the company no longer uses the term. Employees are expected to do more and more with less and less. Most employees work hard to meet business needs without recognition or reward. Feedback is mostly negative.

Anyone with the ability to leave is gone as soon as possible.

Deteriorating Culture
N/A (Former Employee) –  ConnecticutJanuary 5, 2019
The only thing this company values is their bottom line. Not the employees or the customers within in the territories they serve.

They claim to strive for innovation and yet manage to strip the culture from passion, benefits, resources and engagement- they give you or set up false programs that claim to promote career advancement, engagement etc.. while eliminating vital positions or key skilled personnel. Training, development and networking amongst your peers in the industry minimized!

There is a huge disconnect and the environment is no longer conducive of being innovative, but only striving to survive, move on, or be laid off.
Pros
Not much anymore
Cons
Lack of: Employee Engagement, Career Opportunities, Training/Development

Great place to start a career
Lead Advisor, Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 3, 2018
Avangrid is a Matrix organization. Most managers and senior leaders are not local and reside either in Spain or Scotland. It is definitely a Global work environment.

Employee culture is inclusive and respectful. Communication between managers and employees at times is limited due to managers not being on-site.
Pros
Great benefits.
Cons
Long work hours.

Wind Turbine Technician (Former Employee) –  Bickleton, WASeptember 28, 2018
It was one of the hardest decisions I ever made moving on from this company. What more can I say, they were amazing leaders and took such good care of their employees. Safety was paramount, you could tell the employer really cared.

Not a company I would recommend.
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  USANovember 28, 2018
Most advancement opportunities are filled outside the company and an enormous amount of industry knowledge has left the company through early retirement and outside opportunities.

Don’t work there

Not the experience you think it will be. Stress will be a part of the daily environment. Not everyone is willing to help. Some managers do not set you up to succeed.

Market Risk Manager (Current Employee) –  Portland, OROctober 11, 2018
A typical day at work is meetings and face-to-face conversations with other employees.

I learned that working in a smaller company has just as many benefits as downside.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
