    Pros

    Entrepreneurial company which allows staff the opportunity to progress.

    EDF Trading is definitely an employer of choice, many people want the opportunity to work there because of the geographical and market presence.

    Cons

    Sometimes existing staff are promoted without merit, or substandard under performing remain in their roles, without being managed effectively.

    I have been working at EDF Trading

    Pros

    Friendly and helpful colleagues and pleasant, well-equipped office. Good salary and conditions. Training program well established, and excellent sponsorship opportunities for employees. The core business of EDFT is very interesting.

    Cons

    Buck-passing culture, Inability to manage progress against strategic company goals. Senior management are not respected within the company. Interminable meetings! High staff turnover, low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop searching for magic solutions that will solve all your problems at once. Need to start promoting effective teams and teamwork. You must see that there is a reason nothing progresses, despite a strong desire for change. You should be looking for incremental change, a culture of delivery from unified teams, and a resulting boost in company morale.
