    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at npower full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Agile working, flexible working, good focus on employee satisfaction and wellbeing. Opportunities are generally pretty good if you can work through the politics and processes. Experts and hard workers are normally recognised.

    Cons

    Short-term focus, dependence on management consultants, very political. The biggest con is that the company is being taken over by EON, so long-term prospects have disappeared.
