    I have been working at Severn Trent full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pension, holidays and location.

    Cons

    Development is outsourced. Choice of tools and frameworks is just absurd. AEM and Karaf are the primary ones and that's it. We find ourselves unemployable elsewhere as there is no one in UK looking for these skills.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Severn Trent full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair overall package, love the people I work with, flexible working conditions, current CEO is a breath of fresh air (how often do you hear that from shop floor?).

    Cons

    Office locations are not great - you may have to travel (but WFH is common), some of the wider teams can be difficult to work with, habitual and difficult to change ways of working,

    Advice to Management

    sort your comms out - you are at least trying, but misinformation / rumor can be difficult especially during times of change.
    Write new processes, don't try and change (add) to the ones you've got - simple things can be really frustrating to achieve at times.
