    Pros

    - Friendly employees all around - You can learn a lot if you are pro-active - Interesting R&D projects - One of the most prestigious names in the world, it will shine on your resume!

    Cons

    - HR is definitely the worst thing about this place - Energy business won't be around for long - Only few (special) people go up, doesn't matter how good you are - Lots of formality and bull* happening that you just have to do


  2. Such potential, currently wasted.

    Pros

    A lot going on within the Company on the people agenda - employee opinion survey, new Pendleton leadership model. Probably no headcount reduction this year in Human Resources (as so many people choosing to move on).

    Cons

    The leadership within HR ironically are the least people focused team I've worked with. Overly critical, parental coaching style, control freaks who seem genuinely surprised when their blogs go uncommented upon. We simply don't trust each other to deliver - hence the acknowledge bureaucracy and significant time it takes to get products and projects past the finishing post.

    Advice to Management

    Role model John Rishton - appears authentic, humble, balancing holding people to account & trusting people to do their roles. HR leadership - your teams currently do not trust you - to do the right thing or that you want to engage with us. Is that really what you want?
