    I have been working at Anglian Water full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company is a customer focused company, always looking at ways to improve its service. For colleagues it supports flexible working and has a great range of benefits which you can choose from to suit you and your family

    Cons

    Lots of different business units so can take a little time to work through what different parts do and what everybody does, but company induction is good and people take the time to explain their area so its a matter of fitting it together

    Pros

    Friendly environment - feels like a family Respectful culture Good job security Flexible working locations Focuses on being a good place to work

    Cons

    Anglian Water is not an efficient company and poor value for customers can be widely seen across the business. Disorderly in the way it conducts business (poor process, discipline and structure). Poor car schemes (unless Sr. manager). Does not utilise people to their best potential (in my opinion) Does not value experience/ expertise outside of Anglian Water and the water industry.

    Pros

    Has real focus on well being and mental health of employees. Back this up with flexible working and working from home options where possible. Promote moving through different functions to learn the company. Complex industry to learn. Opportunities to develop if you're willing to take them.

    Cons

    Regulated industry, means that things sometimes more slower than you may want. Some functions work in silos', but do great work, more comms are needed.
