Current Employee - Customer Service Advisor in London, England (UK)

I have been working at SSE full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good rates of pay for the job itself, especially for a call centre job.
Health and safety is taken serious, very seriously at SSE.
Always support if needed.

Cons

Far to many indecisive changes by management, the business demands change very quickly due to energy market.
Difficult to progress without being favoured by management, many vacancies were not advertised but simply given to, popular members of staff.
Office politics is excessive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a honest internal employment structure.

    Pros

    Good salary and have good offers on shares within the company

    Cons

    Very hard to progress unless your "friends" with management. Not treated as a person, more a number to answer calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to treat there teams like family not just the customers

    I worked at SSE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provides all the training and support you will ever require!
    SSE have a "family" view when it comes to their staff. They provide a good working atmosphere and challenges are never short! Success stories were shared through "open door," a dvd sent out to all the sales branches.
    I was able to develop myself and progress up the food chain in a short period!
    SSE will always have a special place in my heart!

    Cons

    Being in the sales department, we worked long hours but that is just the nature of sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact and listen more to those at the bottom of the food chain.
