Former Employee - Retentions Agent in Worthing, South East England, England (UK)

I worked at EDF Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good salary and commission, incentives and a lot of opportunity for overtime. Safe and secure lifestyle, unless you're caught doing something wrong (there are lots of rules)

Cons

High school style discipline, anal management, over-the-top processes and regulations. Can you see yourself sitting on a phone until you're 60?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are to have placement students, use them, they can do things. Dont treat them as permenant employees through HR

    I worked at EDF Energy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They have strong values and good working practices. There is some great talent there that is really focused on improving the industry.

    Cons

    Still quite a few people with the old public sector mentality who don't like change and they are holding back talent from growing and making the company a better place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make all your restructuring exercises effective and keep the right people that will help the company grow. Too many 'old-school' people that are out of date now in today's environment.
