  1.  

    A good firm to work for, slow processes and systems but with a major Transformation piece in the pipeline.

    I have been working at UK Power Networks as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A meritocratic organisation which encourages new ideas, hard work and good collaboration across all departments. A good mix of engineering and commercial focus.

    Cons

    Slow processes and systems, especially with respect to HR management. It is the HR processes that hinder the organisation, not the people. The Transformation programme that is in the pipeline should help to develop on this.

    I have been working at UK Power Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, friendly people to work with - most have been there for many years, opportunities to get qualifications and further your experience, they are currently trying to change and listen to peoples views

    Cons

    No initial structure or work for me to do when I first joined. It gradually began picking up after a few months but still can be slow at times. Most managers do not interact with people 'below' them - they often say they want to hear people's views but rarely speak to anyone that is not senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a bit more approachable and make an effort towards the 'small people' - even if it's just a 2 minute 'hello' to a general group in the office.
