    I have been working at ELEXON full-time

    Pros

    People, reasonable pay, free fruit (x2 a week), will listen to everyone, open communication and regularly, flattish hierarchy, benefits excellent (health care, pension, gym membership, season ticket loan, EAP etc), 'passport' 3 month probation with regular updates with HR and own management, as well as sit downs and chats with all Executive Board, small company so really can communicate easily and efficiently with all, working from home ability, emphasis on CSR- because of caring not for profit reasons, excellent parties! Reward scheme, showers in building. Really learning opportunities, they will put you through most training you want and support you doing so. Generous 28 day holiday. Beautiful offices, great coffee machines and a brill sparkling water fountain! Employees genuinely care about the company and are really invested, really low staff turnover. The building is part of Regents place, which is always putting on events and is a truly ideal location and place to work.

    Cons

    Close working can often lead to fuzzy lines of accountability, and people wanting to do things that aren't necessarily within their role (though I guess this is preferable to noone ever wanting to do anything).
    some senior managers deliberately don't adhere to company policy despite being the ones who should be.
    Smell can sometimes come up from Eat which smells like stink bombs been set off.
    Can't seem to control the temperature correctly, freezing cold or boiling hot.
    Can be really bureaucratic, with approvals and papers needed for EVERYTHING which can take unnecessary time and cause hassle as everything has to be written 'the elexon way'.

    Advice to Management

    Pay rises please!

    Pros

    Very good in house training - I've never experienced better anywhere else
    Good salary
    Very good performance review and career progression frameworks
    Nice offices and location

    Cons

    Deep silo mentality where departments don't communicate, are secretive with one another and hoarde knowledge and information.
    Departments run like little companies, with lots of duplicated effort.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the barriers between departments.
    Don't allow silos to develop
    Encourage knowledge sharing
    Eliminate duplicate departments
