    I have been working at Southern Water full-time

    Pros

    A varied group of projects
    Some great colleagues

    Cons

    Bullying tactics are adopted frequently
    IT systems are awful
    Workloads are too high

    Advice to Management

    Whilst there are a number of great Snr Managers, a few bullies bring the entire organisation down. Project delivery processes are well thought through but incredibly arduous to get the smallest things done.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southern Water.

    Interview

    The first stage was a telephone interview (with an agency), then followed by a face to face interview at the head office in Durrington. Two interviewers in the panel who wrote down everything said.
