    I have been working at Northern Gas and Power full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Brilliant working environment, everyone works as a team to help move the business forward. The atmosphere is excellent and upbeat and it feels like a big family. Great earning potential and a team of people in the training dept ready to help you be the best, not only training and coaching but using life coach skills and helping with mindset and self actualization.

    Cons

    Finding things to do on my full month off in December, which is the best business perk going!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    9-5
    Early finish/pizza Fridays
    Conference was great fun
    SME team manager

    Cons

    I worked at NGP for five months. It started off great, the training week was fantastic, everybody was very welcoming and promised the world in terms of coaching and support. All of which was done over in Corporate when introductions were made.

    Once I started in SME a few weeks later it all changed. The directors never entered the SME building the entire time I was there, they just called up the team manager 100 times a day to ask for revenue updates. Maybe if they walked the two minute journey over the road then they could see for themselves and understand why we were struggling.

    Key members of the coaching team never entered the building either. Emails were sent saying there are good call examples in a share drive, but that is as much as they could offer. A big pull of the company for me was 'the amazing coaching team' who offer dedicated 1to1 help. Reality is they offer nothing. I think the head of the coaching team came over maybe twice and offered advice on two or three calls. Not really a fair representation considering you make over 100 calls per day.

    It put unfair pressure on the team manager to give coaching and offer help to his team. In a large team, he needed help to do all of his jobs. I saw a lot of people leave the office, all of which could've been helped if the coaches spent some time over there.

    In hindsight, the training week was all geared towards Corporate too. All the explanations of what the business can do, none of it was appropriate for the SME customers, so how could we have good calls to close sales? Again, backs up my point, the staff in the SME office are not deemed important.

    Advice to Management

    A massive part of NGPs good reputation is based on the early finishes and December shutdown, who wouldn't be excited by it? Reality is you have a ridiculously high staff turnover, maybe you should consider why that is and actually try to develop people rather than sack anyone who doesn't hit a target.
