Current Employee - Cable Jointer

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

Pros

Salary car parking ppe working hours

Cons

You get paid the same salary as other people in your grade so there is no financial incentive to gain extra skills or be harder working then your Co worker as they can be lazy and get paid exactly... the same

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.
