FilterUK - All CitiesLaboratory Technician
I worked at Anglian Water full-time (More than 3 years)
On the whole a positive place to work, with a few passionate people that will try to assist in your personal development.
In the area I worked in there were many people with no passion or direction in their careers, who had come straight from university with the same lack of direction. This culture is cultivated by the lack of opportunity for promotion which means that teams have a number of unprofessional 'hangers-on', whilst competent staff will leave to seek other opportunities.
Advice to Management
More focus on providing opportunity based on merit, and not just for apprentices/graduates. Listen to the aspirations of staff and communicate better with other areas of the business to provide opportunities for staff that show willingness to improve themselves. From what I saw, AW is very good at taking credit for the individual achievements of its staff, regardless of the company as a whole being involved, followed by a bit of PR spiel in the company newspaper.
