    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Everything there is topical - social responsibility, environmental sustainability, keeping ahead in a competitive industry..and not forgetting quite literally, keeping the lights on!

    Cons

    Actually I cannot think of many serious ones but like all big organisations it can sometimes feel like it is taking a long time to make changes and get things done but then again taking time can improve the end result.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on being bold and ambitious and keep the good relationships that you have built up with a loyal staff over the years.

    I work in a friendly environment, with a company that looks after your health and well being.

    Some calls we get can be challenging but over all people are good human beings and with compassion and knowledge they soon come around.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little kinder to us who work on the phones, we understand the company needs to make a profit however we are much more than a number on a board or what our stats might be, we are people who sometimes in adverse circumstances make this company's clock tick, and would like to be appreciated.

    I have been working at Électricité de France full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A solid salary package with up to 28 days holiday per year, great pension benefits and company contributions to private health insurance for all levels of the corporation. Speaking from experience, there are great opportunities to progress internally if you have what it takes and can perform. There is a great culture and acceptance that every decision we make may not be the correct one but everything is done with the right intention in mind and there is a genuine customer focus. A great place to work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, not all staff are committed to their role and there is definitely room for improvement in attitude of some individuals which the company actively works to change and improve. Very little else, I think all large companies can suffer with limited communication at times on certain topics and perhaps more direct comms from your managers would be better placed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, respect people for their contributions because the job is not easy on a skills and mental level. Reward and recognition are a great tool but these don't have to be fiscal, get managers involved in day to day activities and competitions within teams and areas to build engagement with quality programmes and wider targets. Keep staff in training and commit to continuous improvement. Simply put, take short term pain for long term gain, not just for customer benefit but for profit margins also and everybody wins.
