    Pros

    There are no pros to working at Severn Trent.

    Cons

    Half the colleagues only got the job because they knew the manager or another senior colleague. Rude, overpaid and jobsworth management with too much time on their hands, time which is spent on producing ridiculous amounts of paperwork and hounding you for every minor mistake, Colleagues will snitch on you to management to further their career as well as protect their own job. Also, CEO has lot of new ideas but they simply don't work in what is a practical job. Endless team meetings most of which are a waste of time. To make it worse your manager will hire a friend they knew for 20 years. If your not part of that circle, you will struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Almost all of you management have too much time on your hands. Stop encouraging colleagues to grass each other up. Your overpaid and you try to justify your time by producing extraordinary amounts of dossiers on workers ; focus on your own mistakes such as wasting budgets on infrastructure that is being unused.
