    I have been working at National Grid (UK) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good company share-saving scheme in place

    Cons

    Not interested in retaining good engineers
    Employing underpaid people from outside the industry even in the most critical departments
    Safety and security of national grid system no longer paramount, it's all about money

    Advice to Management

    The management is inept, they wouldn't understand to do something until it's too late
    Once CEGB days are long gone, system design, planning and operation = at lowest level

    I worked at National Grid (UK) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training, secure job, easy life - not a difficult company to work in.

    Cons

    'old school' practices prevail, no transparency in recruitment or career progression practices. Bad performance is not tackled and good performance is rarely rewarded. Lack of any significant challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the workforce and become more efficient.
