Pros

Friendly and informal culture. I liked all my managers, including senior managers, on a personal basis and almost all my co-workers were lovely. Opportunity to go part-time was always there. Opportunity to take an unpaid sabbatical. Well paid overtime was always available. Good bonuses, though they're not always there. This is a good place to be if you want a non-demanding 9-5 working in a nice, informal environment but are not too concerned about learning new skills or earning much money.

Cons

The work itself is generally very repetitive, quite dull and has very little value outside it's niche in the energy industry. You can get shunted about into different teams or your duties can be changed drastically without any consultation. It is very difficult to move around the business and you have to fight tooth and nail to get any training. For example, I tried multiple times to get training to become a BA but was told each time "Oh we already have too many BAs blah blah..." The few people held up as examples of progression were often family or good mates of senior management. For example, we were sent around a story about some guy who went from Ops to become a software engineer - however they conveniently left out that he was the son of the Head of Tech!

Advice to Management

Providing opportunities for progression for ambitious people will do wonders for you.

Opportunity to go part
