    I have been working at ScottishPower part-time

    Pros

    In general SP offers a good salary and benefits. It's a nice building to work in. Most departments are open to flexible working.

    Cons

    It can be very slow moving and bureacratic. Depending on what part of the business you are in, opportunities for promotion are thin on the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your staff are saying. Communicate with them. Stick to your deadlines - don't give false impressions you then need to go back on. Keep up the good work re flexible working, but don't let it mean the end to someone's career prospects if they work less than full time.
