    first perks is brilliant from booking holidays to primark vouchers your bound to find something you like, tea coffee and milk are provided, the offer to buy up to 5 extra days holiday a year. Time off as with all things is on a first come first serve but generally very flexible

    Much improved now the new maternity/paternity pay has been introduced! I've saved a lot of money using the first perks portal access (discounts off high street shops and more) and the new car park is a huge improvement! Plenty of space for all.

    First Utility seem to have a benefit package for every one who works here whether it's to do with fitness & health or because you have children or starting a family, or if you want to be educated and move department they have courses and schemes that allow you to do this and explore within the company therefore letting you express yourself and your interests - they seem to cater for everyone and really look after their employees.

    Benefits package I feel is good overall. Pension contribution could be better.

  • 01 May 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Coventry, England

    Basic wage is at or slight above market average. Flexible working ('agile working') though never properly briefed out is available in about 80% of the depts and it's good to know the company has that faith in their workforce overall that you can self manage you time like that. The often lauded perks portal is just a glorified discount voucher scheme that gives occasional worthy discounts (that could be found elsewhere) but really doesn't make up for the: poor pension or poor maternity/paternity package. BUPA is nice, though diagnostic only so no treatment involved. Cycle to work is a government initiative and fruit on a Friday is nice but not really a benefit

    The best thing about working for First Utility is the partnership with Private Bupa Health Cover. It has helped with advice in what was needed when my health took a downturn
