I worked at National Grid - UK as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

Great People who are all willing to take time to teach you and answer any questions you have. Good and flexible hours. Get to have outside on the field experience as well as in the office. The pay for an intern is pretty good.

Cons

My department was secluded from the rest, so it felt kind of stranded and left out. Employee appreciation is low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more ice breaker events, actual activities. Do a program to switch the interns through departments so they can get a taste of each.

    I worked at National Grid - UK full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, work load is manageable, some of the people you work with "get it" and make things entertaining.

    Cons

    When you work at a facility that was previously purchased by the Grid, it tends to be downsized. Not much organization and compared to other facilities the Whites Path location is seemingly not on corprate HQ's radar. Not all department heads "get it" and tend to cause more problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your policies and no when to hold onto valuable people instead of returning favors to people who are long over due for retirement.
