    I worked at RWE Supply & Trading full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Formally fair treatment of employess (unions have very strong voice). They really try to be flexible and innovative. Good communication from management. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Inflexible organizational structure (I think due to strong unions) - there is too much staff at some units. Because of this people protect their chairs and consequently it sometimes creates internal unwanted competition and chinese walls,

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of low perfomers (including people at management level).

    I have been working at RWE Supply & Trading full-time (More than a year)

    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.
