Current Employee - Mechanical Technician

I have been working at Thames Water full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good training, skills development and driven to climb the ladder. Great teams.

Cons

Management at area level seem to be in a different world and not understand what happens on the ground. Work scheduling is atrocious, something that can be locally is being done in reading which... causes issues. Not much overtime.

Advice to Management

Listen to local concerns.

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.
