How are senior leaders perceived at OVO Energy?

Pros

Free breakfast and good coffee Gym on site It's innovative

Cons

Very, very political but more like when you're at college. E.g it feels more based on popularity than real results. People in senior position have been with the company from when it was formed and generally don't have too much experience. As such their guidance, support and leadership is not particularly great. Very frequent restructures - e.g. every 3 months there is some sort restructure and very annoying office / desk move in place. No clear processes and procedures but this is being 'Agile'. It's got a supportive people focussed image but is actually pretty ruthless.

Advice to Management

Stop the constant restructures

As such their guidance, support and leadership is not particularly great.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at OVO Energy?

Pros

Most people at OVO are genuinely lovely, highly capable and enthusiastic. There's some really inspiring, talented people to learn from, and I learned a lot at OVO. Flexitime is good.

Cons

Inept prioritisation at director level means different departments are constantly blocking each other. Stuff only gets done through sheer stress and panic. There is a mental health committee who try their best but without a coherent strategy at the top level, everything hangs together by strings, leaving employees overworked and terrified of dropping the ball. Pay is well under average.

Advice to Management

Read the Phoenix Project, and get someone with serious enterprise level experience streamlining and prioritising your goals.
