No opinion of CEO

I worked at RWE npower as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The new culture that the company CEO Paul Massara has roled out alongside the customer transformation programme is definitely the way forward. This new look at how the business approaches its customers will enhance the comapnys reputation and help it to retain the existing and new customers it works hard to maintain.

Cons

The staff are complacent and change resistant. Management have a tendancy to Silo channels of workloads, instead of thinking end to end solutions. The chain of communications has been aided recently with skip level meetings, but the changes being roled out are being met by resistant staff due to failed previous role outs, and communication battles outside of the skip level meetings.

Advice to Management

The discipline of staff at one particular site is very minimal and the feeling that people are allowed to get away with unnacepable behaviours breeds more and more staff who think this way. A stricter management role needs to start dealing with the people who turn up to get paid ratherthan those who turn up to do the best for the customers. Less hierarchy is needed to be able to get issues dealt with at lower levels. Hr need to be more involved and the union less so.

    I have been working at RWE npower full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not stressful, good worklife balance. Generally willing to invest resources in training. Nice office with good restaurant . Gym (apparently).

    Cons

    Slow progression, benefits and flexibility could be better. Recent reduction in staff has resulted in lower levels of expertise. Achievement and exceptional results not rewarded / distinguished. Uninspiring location.

    Advice to Management

    Better rewards for performance. Clearer strategy
