    I have been working at NRG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is my second time working at NRG and it is a lovely place to work. A wonderful culture and the senior management team are very approachable. I have recommended NRG to a number of friends and family.

    Recently rejoining the team I quickly felt at home and had a great deal of support during this transition! I thorough am enjoying my new challenge here at NRG.

    Cons

    No cons - NRG are an excellent employer

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Well established regional business and brand in prime city centre location. Sone great loyal people work there, could be great place to work.

    Cons

    Management style old fashioned, aggressive & lacks thought - many spirits broken. Lack of investment in staff or technology, Short term vision, not moving with the times & take advantage of good will.

    Advice to Management

    Board & heads of need to look at themselves as to where the culture & behaviour stems from.

    I worked at NRG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People in the office were nice, HR lady lovely.

    Cons

    Limited career progression or funds to advertise for specific markets or post too many adverts which made day to day recruitment tough

    Advice to Management

    Involve new starters more as I didnt feel very included when I came in to the office and was left to my own devices.

    I worked at NRG full-time

    Pros

    I am struggling to think of any

    Cons

    A company that lacks any strategy or direction both in terms of its staff's development and overall business goals which appear to change on a week by week basis.
    Training is non existent and is on the job - I would not recommend taking a job at NRG without prior recruitment experience as you will be exposed and unsupported.
    Progression is not an option for staff at NRG and strengths are rarely acknowledged.
    Overall management is erratic and usually based on fear with screaming and shouting being a common occurrence from the owner.

    Advice to Management

    Time to retire!
