How is the work/life balance at OVO Energy?

Pros

Work/life balance is good, working time is very flexible. Free breakfast and free lunch every Friday. Flex fund of 4% your annual salary to spend in a lot of useful perks.

Cons

There's a big lack of communication between different teams in the company. They change the structure of the company almost every year, and usually always for the worse. There's no coordination and management is a joke, in part because instead of promoting capable people, they promote friends instead. There's no career progression here, unless you make yourself friends with key people from the beginning. Salaries are way below the market, comparing to other companies in London. There's no pride on the work that is delivered, it works on a "as long as it works, I don't care if it looks terrible" basis. Also, it's a bit suspicious that you almost don't see anyone that isn't british with head of department or director roles in this company. Go figure.

Advice to Management

Improve your career progression method, stop allowing the "boys club" environment. It's unprofessional and borderline illegal. Review salaries to match the market in London, this isn't Bristol and the cost of life is way higher here.

Work/life balance is good, working time is very flexible.
