I worked at Utilitywise full-time

Pros

Good for new-comers to the energy sector and a good please for a stepping-stone in your career.

Cons

The whole hierarchy of staff have a primary school mentality. The canteen is horrible and if you don't fit in with the standard of "sales people" you'll get mocked and laughed at... This never happened to myself but I saw plenty of it.

The different departments sleep around like it's a game and your reputation can get tarnished through stupid gossip.

Brendan is a puppet who side-steps questions like a typical politician. I bet he is a Tory.

Advice to Management

Don't openly talk about nights out and drugs in front of the floor you actually look after.

    I worked at Utilitywise full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some team mates and management are ok

    Cons

    Where do I start favouritism is rife along with bullying and this is from my team manager who talks about you behind your back , big deals taken off you and given to the managers pet , underhand dealings with salary increases for the favourites , the training is a joke claim to want to train non sales people then don't spend time looking after them then sacking after 3 months.
    The data is awful businesses are fed up with being rang 10 + times a day
    Management ( using the word loosely ) are incompetent lack of direction , any sniff of a potential deal try to force the contracts through without being signed by the client

    Advice to Management

    You all need to have experience in a management environment , learn how to speak to you staff stop with the bullying culture and favouritism
