Featured Review

Current Employee - Technician

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

Pros

They really go out of their way to show that they care for their employees. They also host lots of events to really socialise within the organisation. I feel like I’m at university again.

Cons

Haven’t seen anything bad about working here so far.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

Current Employee - Senior Customer Manager

I have been working at Anglian Water full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Anglian Water Share my own personal values of looking after people, both the people who work for the company and the customers and community's who are served. I would not be able to work for a... company that did not share these values. Benefits are very good. progression and development are very good. Support both financially and mentally very good.

Cons

Lots and lots of constant projects that do not always align. Its like steering a big ship

Advice to Management

Centrally Governed Project and portfolio management
