I worked at ELEXON full-time

Pros

Good work-life flexibility.
Nice and supportive people to work with, though this varies depending on the manager and the team you join.
Good career option if you are interested in the field of data analytics.

Cons

Trainees are treated with disdain and don't receive any proper job training; less desirable and unwanted tasks are packaged as "learning opportunities" instead.
Rigid work environment; many paperwork chores and bureaucratic hurdles to clear before you can change anything.
Signs of poor employee morale were not picked up and addressed by the management early enough, and this culminated in a high turnover last year.

Advice to Management

Stay in touch with your rank-and-file employees. Take interest in their long term career development, and don't just look upon them as short term resources.
