    I have been working at National Grid (UK) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, Good Share save scheme and pension, relaxed working environment. Good development opportunities if you find the right department.

    Cons

    Different departments have different cultures, some departments are much more flexible, development opportunities can be rare in some areas of the business.

    Advice to Management

    NG policies on flexible working hours/working from home need to be applied consistently across all departments.
