    Pros

    Anglian Water is a progressive organisation that has it’s employees and it’s customers at the heart of it does. The workforce is clearly proud, passionate and really cares about the work they do, which results in a really positive culture and working environment.

    The benefits and pay are great and there is a real drive to invest in its people. Due to the nature and size of the business, there are so many avenues that can be pursued, should individuals want to diversify. Career progression is fully supported and those that want to progress are given the opportunity to develop.

    I have really enjoyed my time here and would advise anyone thinking of joining the business to take that leap.

    Pros

    High salary, good employee benefits and opportunities to make friends. Free tea, coffee and fruit juice provided. Chocolate often provided and good sickness support.

    Cons

    Widespread bullying. Management tend to ignore it. Systems are world class however almost daily system issues which can get really frustrating. Also if in satellite office such as Hartlepool, extremely limited options to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Please start an anonymous system to report bullying and a peer support system.

    Come on AW, you're almost a world-class employer!
