Pros

Great life-work balance, with the flexitime scheme being an important feature. Good place to start a career in Renewables or price regulation.

Cons

Heavy beaurocracy; uncertainty about where the organisation is going in light of government change, and subsequent review of the organisation, which is a 'quango' in effect.

Advice to Management

Try to be stringent about your 'open door' policy, and make it a reality not a story you tell to candidates! Review your incentives in light of pay + recruitment freeze.

    I have been working at Ofgem full-time

    Pros

    Really interesting work that drives real positive benefits for consumers. You get to work on high profile cases that often receive lots of media attention. Get a lot of responsibility from very early on.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be slow to get promoted and you have to interview to attain it. Not the greatest number of development opportunities.


  2. Great place to work if you are looking to retire soon or take maternity leave

    I have been working at Ofgem (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office location. Good work life balance. Depending on how much work you do, you can build up flexi time. Depending on which department/area you join, you will be given quite a lot of exposure to different lines of work across the company.

    Cons

    Slow moving. Senior Management suffer from not being able to take a decision which leads to paralysis and meaningless data analysis of the work being carried out. Very low pay and no sign of improvement in the near future. Staff retention rate extremely low due to lack of promotional prospects and too many egos sitting at Senior Management level.
