    Pros

    Safety first, health and well-being focussed culture, flexible working offered, feels like a tight knit finance team even though it is a large, multi-locational business

    Cons

    Communication of changes not the greatest meaning staff are not always informed in good time about structural changes etc.

    I worked at SSE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Many kong standing employees that are happy to offer advice and mentorship - reasonable level of opportunity for advancement - Some flexible working and autonomy in role - regular training offered - my manager was excellent and very supportive - my team where experienced, committed and very capable.

    Cons

    - Company lost the ‘family feeling’ it once had and became more corporate - many processes and rules in place just as tick box exercise (health and safety etc). These are important rules so upper management should have taken them more seriously - lack of clarity around staff expectations and performance review process
