    I have been working at OVO Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of career growth opportunities available
    - Genuinely flexible working hours
    - Good Benefits Package
    - Free Breakfast
    - Free Lunch on Fridays for the London offices
    - Regular Socials

    Cons

    If you don't like change, Ovo might not be for you. Ovo is a complex fast paced business which I personally find exciting but isn't for everyone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OVO Energy (Bristol, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Process took four weeks from application to rejection. This included 6 hours of interviewing, which included a 30 minute phone interview, a 1 hour 30 minute face to face interview, a 2 hour code test on Codility, a 1 hour pair programming exercise, a 30 minute interview with HR, and a 30 minute interview with a hiring manager.

    Overall the process was inefficient and repetitive and gave me a negative impression of Ovo.
