Featured Review

Current Employee - Technician

I have been working at Western Power Distribution full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

- Great working atmosphere - Good pay - Most staff have a "can do" attitude

Cons

- Management don't listen to staff suggestions - Staff that are "difficult" get away with murder and are not addressed - You get loaded up with work if you show initiative - Guilty until proven... innocent culture

Advice to Management

Distribute work to people that aren't busy instead of letting them get away with doing nothing
