Pros

Great people good opportunities poor bosses

Cons

so much politics
There seems to be a disconnect between upper management and mid level managers and the actual workers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never give the answer, "we do it that way because we always did it like that" It is not an answer

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The co-workers / overall staff are great people. The pay and benifits , decent.

    Cons

    No clear direction from senior level Mgmt. Although they make profits each year it was decided to outsource IS. Slashing jobs and outsourcing is all they seem to know how to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be cheaper and more productive to outsource YOU !!

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good and bonuses have been very good for this industry. People are nice, atmosphere is relaxed. Flexible working hours depending on the area.

    Cons

    Not cutting edge, too conservative. Inability to get rid of lousy employees. Slow decision making. Company is going through layoffs and IT outsourcing. National Grid should never have bought Keyspan. Reorganization probably a prelude to sell off of the US business. Slight culture clash between UK and US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to do something, do it faster. Demand results and get rid of slow and lazy people.
