    I worked at Electricity Supply Board as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, low level of micromanagement, high work-life balance, very flexible environment, well paid for the level of work done

    Cons

    Things are done incredibly slowly here, there seems to be a low level of work-ethic and drive among the staff, it has a very civil service type vibe about the place, staff come in at 8.45 and are out the door bang on 4.45,
