I worked at Western Power Distribution full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I worked for WPD for 11 years in Exeter I worked for SWEB originally then they split it in two halves. I always loved working for WPD and had great work colleges. The company was always good to me with flexi time when I had my kids etc. And the management was always excellent and very supportive.

Cons

WPD has since taken over the Midlands and WPD has gone right down hill. One thing goes in one area but not in another they all have their own rules with no consistency. I wouldn't want to work for them now but unfortunately my poor husband still does. He now works in the Midlands he doesn't get any of the management support or back up. Management don't seem to want to take on any responsibilities a whole different company now totally different. I am very surprised that Mr R Symons has let this happen.

Advice to Management

You need to set out rules and regs and set them company wide. West Midlands seem to make it up as they go along. No longer the highly thought of company I used to know!

    I worked at Western Power Distribution (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed all the staff I worked with and the management were very pleasant. Good opportunities for permanent positions. Enjoyed time

    Cons

    There was a lack of flexible working hours. The building in Tipton was dire, often with a lack of heating which took too long to fix

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible in the working hour staff want to work. Improve the building that we were working in to make it a more enjoyable environment to work
