      Pros

      Anglian Water Share my own personal values of looking after people, both the people who work for the company and the customers and community's who are served. I would not be able to work for a company that did not share these values. Benefits are very good. progression and development are very good. Support both financially and mentally very good.

      Cons

      Lots and lots of constant projects that do not always align. Its like steering a big ship

      Great Place to Work

      May 21, 2021 - Senior Manager in Norwich, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexibility - culture of engagement and development of individuals and teams; Passion - it is a place full of passionate people focused on the task of supplying wholesome water to our customer before treating it and returning it safely to the environment; Variety - the scope and opportunity of roles within the company are significant, particularly when including the roles within our alliance partners (who range from IT through to facilities management); Well-being - the business really does care about all employees and has been on a significant journey over the last few years to improve employee support as well as flexibility of benefits/working environment;

      Cons

      It is a visible and recognisable company with a clear presence in the community, which means that employees can be approached at any time with questions about the company’s performance, the water industry as a whole or the leak or flood in their street. This can be daunting for some people, but it is also very rewarding as it is a company to be proud of for those of us who work here.

      Pros

      Anglian Water is a forward thinking, change delivering, frontier pushing company that recognizes and respects that it's people are it's most important and valuable asset. The values of Anglian Water and all of the normal company slogans actually feel like they mean something, and people here really do feel part of a bigger purpose. I am well supported by my immediate managers and others across the business are always willing to help and share their knowledge. I am also well rewarded, particularly for the region we work in. The additional benefits available to employees, annual leave, medical cover, mental health and financial support are exceptional.

      Cons

      As a regulated business, reward (whilst fair) is lower than similar roles in truly private sectors (but more secure). There are some really big challenges facing the water industry, if you aren't passionate about change and progress - the hard work needed over coming years will be a negative.
