Ineffective resourcing policy - some departments have lots of staff but do very little; some have minimal staff with a high workload causing stress Salary structure isn’t fair and annual salary increases are minimal Very little training or support for managers

Pros

Learning & Development are exceptional but massively undervalued. The people at Thames Water are hardworking and genuinely proud to be there for the most part.

Cons

During my time at Thames I have seen a lot of change very quickly, however it was not very well planned or structured. Achieving anything at all can feel like a mission due to high levels of bureaucracy and company wide technical issues. Pay is very poor and the benefits provide a good pension and not much else worthwhile for office workers. I will say that the environment can be very unprofessional in certain areas, but this may have just been my experience.

Advice to Management

Take the time to invest in understanding the environment in your teams on a personal level, too much reliance is based on the employee survey/middle managers.

Pros

I really enjoy my job, with new challenges to solve on every project. Great pension and good people.

Cons

It is a mess at the top management level. We have just got a new CEO so it may improve. There is a high turnover of staff, but people do have the opportunity to move to other roles within Thames Water due to the size of the company.

Great pension and good people.
