    I have been working at E.ON full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good variety of projects and roles available. They are big on development and will help you progress if you are willing to jump through some hoops. People are supportive and typically want to help each other out. Good work life balance depending on the department.

    Cons

    A company of middle-managers meaning we have very little expertise in anything. EON are trying to grow in the energy solutions space but have very little capability from a technical point of view meaning we are reliant on external consultants for a lot of work. The technical engineering expertise and innovation comes from Germany, not the UK. Poor systems that require significant investment but so many areas require this that nothing improves that much. Too much "silo-ing". Different departments not knowing each other enough. Very few opportunities in London.
