    I have been working at Thames Water full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at Thames. The business is technically brilliant, a lead innovator in many fields of engineering and environmental science. New recruits and graduates are supported and given lots of opportunities to develop.
    Thames is changing its business model to embrace the commercial market opening up

    Cons

    The business is constrained by the regulator and is too fearful to shout about all the great things that go on.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stifle the momentum we are building
