    I worked at OVO Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free breakfast, % off at Friska, good bonus scheme (if you can live up to its expectations)

    Cons

    It appeared to get anywhere you needed to be popular, rather than it being based on how hard you worked. Majorly cliquey..and forced fun. 6 week training with only 5% actually being helpful in the role.
