    Pros

    Office environment is positive and relaxed, progression possibilities are available both within team and across departments. Business trips are possible, team dependant

    Cons

    It can be hard to gain acknowledgement for added responsibilities compared to less active team members, which can be frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Let members know they are progressing with high performance and are becoming more senior

    Pros

    Good Salary. Good performance is genuinely well rewarded. Happy to pay for and generally supportive of training and development. Good team atmosphere, generally a nice bunch to work with.

    Cons

    If you aren't German, your options for career progression are limited. Some relatively senior colleagues have very limited experience in the areas they are responsible for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring external consultants to tell you what you already know. Trust in your people and promote those who show real promise - not just the big talkers who don't actually add any real value. Focus on changing attitudes and cultures not processes.

    I worked at RWE Supply & Trading full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was really fun to work for the company. You are surrounded by very smart people. Rocket scientists everywhere. The world of electricity derivatives is complicated. However, sometimes the lack of social awareness was kind of a drawback. Anyway, the work ethics and culture is great.

    Cons

    Sometimes a lack of social awareness was definitely a setback. There are many nerds at RWEST.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, flexible working allowed, travel encouraged, friendly relaxed people, London office is especially fun and team spirited, work is relatively easy and relaxed.

    Cons

    If you want career progression look else where (for UK colleagues), salary increases are like unicorns. German colleagues get promotions over UK colleagues as standard (thanks to German working council and laws). German colleagues are very political and hierarchal. Too much bereaucracy and people hide behind processes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on change of attitude, not on process and empower staff at all levels. Too much working in silos still exists. Reward on merit, not on length of service and stop promoting unfairly i.e. German colleagues over UK colleagues who are more competent.

    Advice to Management

    Be more objective driven
