What do you like about working at National Grid?
As a mother of two toddlers, working at National Grid helps me achieve a work/life balance. I believe National Grid understands the benefits and importance of the work/life balance and encourages its employees to take advantage of the benefits the company offers. In addition, National Grid is continuously looking to provide support to its employees to manage their work/life commitments for example the Caregiver Program that was recently rolled out.

Why did you choose National Grid?
I started my career in civil engineering working for a Structural Engineering firm. The projects I worked on were very similar which was tedious. Here at National Grid, projects are very diverse, every project (from a single structure replacement to a circuit rebuild) has it is own challenges and requirements which make every project unique and interesting.

The people and the culture at National Grid make it a great place to work. There is a lot of knowledge and experience here that needs to be imparted on younger engineers from those who have spent their careers in the power industry and are preparing to retire.

Why did you choose National Grid?
I chose to work at National Grid because of the varied opportunities offered. There is significant potential to learn a lot in a short period of time. National Grid also has numerous programs to support ongoing education, with certificate programs and engineering licenses.

What do you find most rewarding about your role at National Grid?
As a Massachusetts planning engineer, I am responsible for developing projects that address electrical system issues such as capacity, reliability and asset condition issues. My role is extremely rewarding because these projects allow National Grid to provide safe and reliable electric service to our customers. My team also assists operations in restoration efforts during storm events, and I find it especially rewarding to know that I play a part in restoring power to our customers.

National Grid’s culture makes it an amazing place to work. Our company is inclusive and collaborative with a strong safety and customer focus.

What do you like about working at National Grid?
One of the biggest reasons I love working at National Grid is that I am continuously learning, sometimes about responsibilities of other departments in the company and sometimes about doing things differently with new innovative technology. There are always people willing and excited to share knowledge about what they do, and it helps develop better ways of working.

Why did you choose National Grid?
I chose National Grid for two main reasons. First, I was drawn to the company when I saw the collaborative culture during my interview and heard about all the different opportunities inside the company. Second, I was offered a position in the Graduate Development Program (GDP) which provides additional professional development opportunities and builds a network for graduates as they transition into the professional world. I was excited to get the opportunity to rotate around the company with peers before starting our full time positions, and the GDP was ultimately what made me choose National Grid.
