    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay and pension. Real opportunities for progression within certain parts of the business.

    RES is a strange division of AW where employees do seem to be regarded differently to the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please come and talk to us about the little things which can make a massive difference to our day to day efficiency.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Anglian Water full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some brilliant caring people at AW on the front line who are an absolute pleasure to work with. Most Front Line Managers do a fantastic job caring for Staff and Customers with little support from those immediately above. CEO very efficient, effective and understanding should he need to get involved personally in any issue.

    Cons

    Middle or should I say Muddle Management.... Central Control of Work Planning and Schedules the 'Elephant in the Room'. Issues retaining experienced staff in the 'Centre of Excellence' which is very frustrating for Front Line Staff and Customers alike and very inefficient, often with New Starters on Scheduling Desks with no experience attempting to do their best to schedule work for experienced teams using a 'clunky'...

    Advice to Management

    Turn Lincoln into a Call Center of Excellence, nothing more. More Local Control of Work Schedules. Concentrate on the basics of Operation and Maintenance of Company Assetts, remove all the 'Sideshows' that look good on paper and have impressive titles but actually cost far more money to run that they actually save. Avoid Blunderbus Management Techniques, tackle the Precise Issue rather that fire the Blunderbus taking...

    Former Employee - Lab Technician in Huntingdon, England
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Anglian Water full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Private Healthcare * Good place to start a career * CPD

    Cons

    * 'flexible hours' which means you need to stay almost every day * unequal team (few pupils) * asking regularly if you can help to others but never offered help from their selves * old equipment but if something is not working it will be your fault

    Advice to Management

    Watch your Senior Scientist closely as some of them tend to advantage and abuse a technicians. The rotation in some of those labs should says it at all.

    We do operate flexible hours at our labs, however this is a vital service that needs to be manned at all times so there are restrictions. Anyone who has specific personal requirements on their time can work flexible hours as long as they communicate that clearly in advance with their ...
