I worked at ELEXON full-time

Pros

Good work life balance
Generous training budget
Good benefits

Cons

Staff morale is low, and turnover is high- senior management aren't addressing issues at a line manager level. Seems to be a culture of 'if your face doesn't fit, you're out'.

Advice to Management

Look to your people managers to find out why so many people are leaving.

    I worked at ELEXON full-time

    Pros

    Excellent training programmes over the years.
    Good bonuses, though better for those that were there in beginning with final salary pension
    Fairly good work life balance
    Nice office
    Many helpful and friendly people - it's only asset. I still work with many in cooperation.
    Not for profit with protected bites - both it's strength and it's weakness. Security of job.
    In the centre of

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities to progress and when there are, the criteria is managed so that the desired potential internal candidate gets it.
    Vires not unlocked, so lack of expansion opportunities.
    Lack of delegation and autonomy.
    High turnover of staff, many left for rival companies that provide opportunities.
    Communication is carefully controlled.
    Risk adverse.

    Advice to Management

    Provide autonomy to staff
    Trust staff to work from home
    Accept that vires limitation protects you from competition
    Accept that lack of opportunities means staff will move on.
    Stop spinning staff survey results and failings, staff know what is going on.
