What is health insurance like at Aurora Energy Research?

Pros

Aurora offers good possibilities if you are a new graduate and looking to gain work experience. Generally, you have the freedom to work on important projects, and since it's still a small company, you will get wide exposure to many aspects of the energy market. A lot of people working there are intelligent, and there are a lot of social events to make friends. Work-life balance depends on you, but generally, I didn't find the environment as pressuring as some people mentioned earlier. Business is booming, and generally, they are a successful company.

Cons

Salary is not competitive. Oxford is not London. There is no private health insurance, and employee pension scheme contribution is the lowest possible. Management is not flexible on work-from-home policies, and unfortunately, some of the career/'textbook'managers that they hired forget the startup nature of the company and try to incorporate management systems that belong to different types of organisations and compensation levels. This essentially means that you will experience unfairness, and your career progression will not necessarily depend on your performance. In addition, the company has a high turnover, with people coming and leaving literally every week. Behind the scenes, the company culture is broken, especially at the more senior level. I would not recommend the company to an experienced professional. However, it could be a good choice if you have recently graduated and fancy living in Oxford for a short time.

Advice to Management

Managers should be leaders and not career managers. The ineffectiveness of your systems is visible in the staff's internal ratings and the company's high turnover.

There is no private health insurance, and employee pension scheme contribution is the lowest possible.
