    Pros

    My manager is nice (depends on who your manager is).
    like the atmosphere in the team
    regular 1-1s
    have learned and developed a lot in the last two years
    work is interesting (again this depends on what you do. )

    Cons

    Lots of departments have gone through restructuring.
    heard some people in other teams were unhappy
    Tight budget - can't even get a laptop
    Management won't allow me to apply for roles 2 grades above my current grade.
    Not a lot of progression opportunities within the company, very few jobs on the internal job board.

    I have been working at E.ON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of development and progression opportunities UK and Europe.

    Cons

    False promises, I really grafted to make my business area a success. But I now believe at high level the plan was always different despite them guaranteeing longevity.

    Also the company has a massive public negative view due to the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, don't over promise and improve communication top down.

    Good company, nice people, safe job, old fashioned, bureaucratic

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at E.ON full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good working hours and holiday allowance, pension scheme, gym membership, private medical insurance.
    Generally nice people and friendly work environment. Approachable, down-to-earth top management

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and slow decision-making, inflexible on the "old ways". Not very good at recognizing and promoting talent. Too much office politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quick and sometimes tough decisions are necessary - the management must be able to take them, regardless of the sacrifices. New ideas and innovation should be encouraged. Leadership needs to be a bit more involved in development and career growth of employees who show potential.

    I worked at E.ON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There really are not that many pros to be honest

    Cons

    Racist, bully boy tactics, management have their favourites. If your face doesn't fit then any excuse to get you out the door is used. If you are of an ethnic background you can say and so what you like and get away with it as management are scared of the race card being pulled

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out your teams. Stamp out the bullying. Stamp out the racism - black against White is a form of racism in this country and upper management need to address it. It sure does stink

    More interest into a domestic and the inner strategy and not into a broad one

    I have been working at E.ON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In Romania the company has being having a big financial potential and great development in the gas and electricity domestic market since 2005.

    Cons

    Even if the company is always promoting a better changing strategy related to the challenging future in the global market energy, the Group doesn't have a clear one at least in Romania. What is the better understood at the mid level of the structure is outsourcing of the services and the reducing of the personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top management must promote the professionals in all the areas of the activity and a clear strategy for development of the middle management. These facts, the weak management and unclear strategy have leaded to the slow development of the services and less progress in the activity. Maybe in the future we'll have nice surprises.
