Bussiness is good for the company but not the employees of Northern States Metals.Although they have made tens of millions in the solar industry they treat their employees terribly.Many of us have not recieved a raise in over 18 months and are told simply that the company didn't make any money last year when anyone that works there knows better.They have hired a new CEO,Tom Meola a corporate bean counter that assures that all profits stay at the top where only those cherry picked by the corrupt and useless management structure can recieve any true compensation.Speaking of management it is very mean spirited on the production floor and utilizes mainly temp agencies when they get a spate of orders,there are very few true full time employees except for the very top heavy engineering and management segments.Ten to twelve dollars an hour is about the most we can hope for from a profitable Inc.5000 company?,a two percent match in a 401k?.They have now installed a virtual revolveing door for employees so they can even get rid of those that make a little money and rehire from the ranks of the temp agencies for less money.This company does not merit any special consideration as a long term employer and provider for any bankable future.In my opinion it is not a good place to work,it is full of decietful people who themselves are probably forced to tow the company line!.Paul Cusson and Tom Meola should be ashamed and emabarrassed!
