    Negative Outlook

    I worked at RWE full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good implementation and use of ITIL practises Quality people to work with on team level, technical abilities were all high but also they were human with sense of humour and personality Good sense of pride in their industry and made you feel proud to be in the utilities sector

    Cons

    Hardly any investment in staff who had reached a certain level or were past the graduate programme stage Constant change and re organisation which we know now was all leading to the outsourcing decision Lack of accountability which also verged on corporate bullying tactics in some cases

    Advice to Management

    Nut sure there are any left who would be able to take on advice.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at RWE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable environment, Reasonable salary for your job, No stress, No responsibility, A lot of free time

    Cons

    Nobody cares about company. Effectiveness is a word that should not be used there, You can be hardly motivated to do anything at all. Even management does not care about anything, Variable salary is one big joke, Career progress possible if your boss or colleague leaves, dies or becomes pregnant, Boring work. If you ask for something more challenging, people laugh at you, Tons of promises and relatively high... demanding interview when you enter company, but as you get in, you realize that trained monkey could do your job. To make it short: ex-monopoly company full of bureaucracy with lack of flexibility

    Advice to Management

    Fire all people who do not work but who are only employed in the company (incl. most of management staff). Change motivation system and hire more people with high schools, rather then universities as they can do almost everything for lower salary

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at RWE

    Pros

    Development and training opportunities. Acceptable level of financial rewards. Flow of information between colleagues is good but not between management and you.

    Cons

    Teams were downsized recently, and there is no guarantees that the senior management stopped here so at the moment the morale is not too high.

    Recognition is crucial and should be fair.
