I worked at SSE full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Provides all the training and support you will ever require!
SSE have a "family" view when it comes to their staff. They provide a good working atmosphere and challenges are never short! Success stories were shared through "open door," a dvd sent out to all the sales branches.
I was able to develop myself and progress up the food chain in a short period!
SSE will always have a special place in my heart!

Cons

Being in the sales department, we worked long hours but that is just the nature of sales.

Advice to Management

Interact and listen more to those at the bottom of the food chain.

    I have been working at SSE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is in a stable and recession proof economic sector. Some of the pros are loyalty to staff, supportive and considerate teams, good work life balance, flat management structure. Intra company moves is encouraged. Job off shoring and outsourcing is discouraged.

    Cons

    Because of the largely flat management structure, advancement within teams are almost nill. You need to switch job to progress. I guess this is similar to what you'll find in similar sized companies. There is also an element of bureaucracy that you'll find in similar sized companies.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce some of the bureaucracy and make innovation processes work.
