    I have been working at Scottish Water part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team to work for, fair and flexible, inclusive and opportunities for varied work and pretty decent pay and benefits (bearing in mind it's public sector so base pay and bonus are never going to be top whack but pension is excellent). SW has a conscience regards the environment and feels responsibility to serve the people of Scotland well, aiming high to be innovative and not rest on our laurels.

    Cons

    Public sector salary scales; change can be slower with more bureaucratic processes to wade through as there's politics and regulatory bodies to convince en route.

    Advice to Management

    Things are on the right track! SW is a great place to work.
