    I have been working at National Grid full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    401k, good benefits, good team, good manager, able to buy additional vacation time.

    Cons

    Technology is a joke and very slow. Sometimes I feel like we are in the dark ages. Promotions in finance are rare and even if you go above and beyond you are looked over. They took away lead analyst titles so why would anyone want to put in the effort. Also they expect that everyone is the same. Some people are comfortable and shouldn't be forced to advance if the do not want to. Not everyone wants to be a manager, director etc. If someone only wants to be a senior or analyst then leave them be. Also the P4G system is completely wrong. If everyone on your team does great you are forced to put someone in the bottom which is very unfair. You are also expected to do projects etc but sometimes the work load is too much to do anything extra.

    I have been working at National Grid full-time

    Pros

    Work flexibility is possible depending who your manager is. Good benefits overall. People are usually really nice and really want the company to succeed.

    Cons

    Finance department is horrible. Constant revolving door. Reorg after reorg after reorg. Understaffed teams, who work 2x as hard and receive recognition in the form of an e-card while their peers in other areas of the company receive promotions. No other department has such a constant expression of misery on their faces. The experience to be gained is great but that’s only because there’s so much work to be done and cross-training is virtually nonexistent for incoming employees.

    I have been working at National Grid full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Laid back workplace and tasks are easy. Good benefits-medical, dental, 401K, and vacation.

    Cons

    Incompetent leadership. Nothing is merit-based where promotions/bonuses are strictly dependent on who you friend with. Unless you have extraordinary skills in brown nosing, you are left with mediocre work responsibilities and NO career growth. And contrary to the common belief that the utility industry is synonymous with job security, there has been at least 1 massive layoffs each year since 2016. Not worth the stress.

  9. "Analyst, National Grid"

    I have been working at National Grid

    Pros

    Good benefits. Work life balance (depending on your role) offers ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Lack of distinct culture and employee engagement - often feels incredibly silo'd among departments. Lots of turnover in upper management leads to constantly changing visions and priorities.
