    I have been working at Anglian Water full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My time at Anglian Water has been a very good experience I am currently going through their Apprentice Programme. I have been working with them for 6 months and I have learnt so much that I will take into my future career with them. My mentor and manager have been very supportive in everything I have done and have helped me become very settle in the team I work in. The environment that I work in is a very friendly and everyone is always there to support me if I have any problems and help me complete tasks easily. I was welcomed into this company with a very organised induction week which informed me with a lot of information on how the company is run and how my time at Anglian Water will be.

    Cons

    I haven't been working here for very long but I am yet to discover anything I am unhappy with.

    Advice to Management

    At the start of my time at Anglian Water accessing the intranet was fairly difficult as I was never formally given my email address and shown how to use they system, After I requested access I can now easily navigate and access the system.
