I worked at ELEXON full-time

Pros

Excellent training programmes over the years.
Good bonuses, though better for those that were there in beginning with final salary pension
Fairly good work life balance
Nice office
Many helpful and friendly people - it's only asset. I still work with many in cooperation.
Not for profit with protected bites - both it's strength and it's weakness. Security of job.
In the centre of

Cons

Lack of opportunities to progress and when there are, the criteria is managed so that the desired potential internal candidate gets it.
Vires not unlocked, so lack of expansion opportunities.
Lack of delegation and autonomy.
High turnover of staff, many left for rival companies that provide opportunities.
Communication is carefully controlled.
Risk adverse.

Advice to Management

Provide autonomy to staff
Trust staff to work from home
Accept that vires limitation protects you from competition
Accept that lack of opportunities means staff will move on.
Stop spinning staff survey results and failings, staff know what is going on.
