    I have been working at npower full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The staff who did not operate at executive level and actually do the real work which keeps those "executives" in power were brilliant, very intelligent and were able to stay motivated through daunting and challenging times.

    Cons

    Unfortunately as the company was losing tens of millions £. The CEO Paul Coffey and his dodgy accomplice COO Dirk Simmons abandoned the 4,500 staff members at Christmas time without giving notice a few days after announcing most staff would be made redundant. It seems that the former COO ran off to Germany and took up a senior position on the parent company board, Innogy, saving only himself. Of course he seemed quite comfortable and almost unapologetic in the prior months/years communicating how the business was losing vast sums of money through several private meetings combined with an unprecedented amount of motivational speakers in the build up to the shocking downfall of what was one of the largest and most successful energy companies in the UK. I strongly believe in the interests of all staff, at all levels whilst they remain, and in light of recent events such as the accounting fraud at companies such as Patisserie Valerie, that they are investigated for embezzlement to alleviate any concerns about the companies finances and clear any sense of wrongdoing due to the cryptic and rather unusual communications sent to staff from the senior executives. Ultimately Paul and Dirk were accountable to the performance of the company and answerable to the staff, and yet have almost miraculously disappeared to avoid any scrutiny they rightly deserve for running one of the largest energy companies into the ground. The good news is that if they find themselves looking for alternative employment they could look at becoming magicians for their ability to make things "disappear" - money, staff, the company and themselves.

    You get well paid for the work you do.

    Very old IT technology holding the company back. Management don't appear to have much idea of how to pull the company out of its current slide.
