    Pros

    The company is aware of the fact the they need new people. For this reason, they treat graduates well. The graduate scheme is well organized even if it is up to the graduate to find a place where to live for a few months. There is a lot of technical stuff on the plant, and one can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Power Plants are, for obvious reasons, located in the worst places of the country. Working in a Power plant means living in a small and sad town near it. This is not really the lifestyle a young graduate would expect to lead. Salary is low, graduates earn 26 thousand pounds a year before tax and senior managers would earn approx 75'000 pounds and the end of their career. No benefits at all, no car, nothing. A recent company policy forced all emloyees to hold handrails on stairs. And if one doesn't do it, god, everyone is ready to tell you off. When I experienced it, I first started wondering if forcing employees in this way is even legal in the UK....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salaries, give benefits. A well treated employee is happier and would work better.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
  2. Internship at the environmental and technical department
