Featured Review

Former Employee - EC&I Technician

I worked at SSE full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great relationships with work colleagues and very relaxed atmosphere

Cons

Alot of the rules were made by people who had no concept of the actual job so were impossible to follow and actually perform the tasks.

Advice to Management

Its impossible for people at the bottom of the pay band to ever catch people at the top, its not fair for people doing the same job to the same standard.

Current Employee - Senior Test Manager

I have been working at SGN full-time for less than a year

Pros

Its a dynamic business, really up and coming in their technology, a fast paced and exciting place to work at the sharp end of today's technology. I find most the people here are really down to... earth, minimising on the fluff and jargon, they actually get on with the work! I am well supported by my manager and I feel appreciated. Incredibly busy, but the work life balance is good! It is still early days in the business, but so far so good.

Cons

Its a bit chaotic at times, lots going on. Office is very industrial and dated compared to other businesses I have worked in, limited on facilities, basic canteen, no gym and located in an... industrial estate.
