Pros

Well i was lucky enough to run scotland for the Indirect Operations of NRG, we had a fantastic team who looked after each other, we fed from one and other and most of all we hit our targets and i also had some fantastic dealers in Scotland

Cons

the only con would have been lack of tech support in the scottish region and the fact our board in Japan were working from figures and not really getting a foothold on the economic downturn that Britain was heading into at that time!!!

    Pros

    Good benefits and good pay in return for quite a few cons.

    Cons

    HR service is terrible. Open workspace with tradefloor type setting. No personal space. Limited emphasis on employee satisfaction and retention. Micromanaging middle management. Middle management also needs training on people skills. Senior management preference to go "cheap" on practically everything. Office facilities are not the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to be happy and stay, you might want to think about focusing on and perhaps also investing on the things or initiatives that improve employee satisfaction.

  2. Quite pleasurable

    Pros

    Excellent pay. Immediate supervisor very flexible.

    Cons

    Regional Mgmt lacks ethics! Hiring and progress reviews extremely questionable at best.

    Advice to Management

    Top management really needs to pay attention to mid-management practices. New England NRG cannot prosper under current Mgmt.
