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

    Pros

    Some decent people and good Hours of work, no weekend work and time off over Christmas. Struggling to think of anything else,

    Cons

    The Job is to lie to clients and extort as much money out of them as possible. Basically to manage the client into believing you are going to save them money when in fact the exact opposite is true, Bullying tactics used by management (although not all ) even heard of staff being physically threatened, false promises and favouritism shown through out the organisation.

    Advice to Management

    The company is making a lot of money doing what it does, tbf to the management, and regards to the bullying and scare tactics, I believe Senior management are aware but turn a blind eye.
