    E.ON Business Services Intern overview

    Project Management (Current Employee)
    Hannover (Germany)

    ProsOpportunity to work alongside different persons, be it an E.ON colleague or an outsourced colleague opens your eye to the differnt business strategies/possibilities in a workplace. Colleagues willing to explain to you what exactly they do, showing you hand for hand the differnt processes related to their job role, and possibility getting tasks from them depending on your availability. Friendly employees willing to show you the help you experience the new culture as a foreigner.

    ConsThe only downside to this intenship is the limited opportunities your get as an English native and with a very limited amount of German. Most projects/colleagues regard to most scenarios in German so it leaves you out in terms of not understanding contents the first time around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProviding interns with prolonged tasks, making them less idle and continuly having to something to do.

    Highs and Lows

    VEC (Current Employee)

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

    ConsFalse 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 Senior ManagementBe honest, don't over promise and improve communication top down.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

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

    ProsGood 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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuick 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Awful company to work for

    just a bod (Former Employee)

    ProsThere really are not that many pros to be honest

    ConsRacist, 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 Senior ManagementSort 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

    Corrosion Engineer (Current Employee)
    Târgu-Mureş (Romania)

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

    ConsEven 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsInternational assignment policy isn't competative or attractive compared with others in the industry
