Featured Review

Former Contractor - Sales Associate

I worked at Shell Energy Retail for more than a year

Pros

Aws and performance bonus nice

Cons

Nothing they are alright so no cons

Current Employee - People Team

I have been working at OVO Energy full-time for more than a year

Pros

OVO has been through incredible transition over the past year or two; the leadership team are settling in now and are making change - hopefully things that will sustain the business long-term. The... past week or so has been really tough with the changes that have been announced - but most people understand we're living through incredibly uncertain times, and the new setup is what's best for everyone longer term. OVO is a business with some fantastic people, some really motivated people - it's a combination of cutting-edge tech, a strong people culture, and a clear plan around de-carbonisation.

Cons

There is still a massive amount of work to do. I've given 4 stars, because I really believe OVO is on a journey - we are absolutely not where we want to be yet, but I feel more confident than ever... that we are on the right path.

Advice to Management

Wherever possible, open honest communication with all levels of the business. Tell people the good & the bad; give people as much insight into numbers & performance as we can. Make people... feel like OVO is theirs - not just yours.
