    I worked at npower full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have hot food onsite.

    Cons

    Bullying culture from senior management down. Rudeness is everywhere. Very lazy staff. No accountability, direction or strategy. Recruitment is awful. Decisions on direction change weekly. All managers are faking it and prioritise looking clever and sounding strong to hide their weaknesses. Everyone is completely demoralised. Some people literally do nothing all day. Stress and anxiety sickness at 20%. Truly awful experience. If you care you are told you "care too much". 95% of the population don't have the skill or will to do the job.

    I worked at npower

    Pros

    Had some good leadership, now gone. Part of a multi national group which is heading in the right direction. A number of excellent staff and a good customer base (eroding).

    Cons

    Overly conservative senior management, poor processes and attitude to risk. Reluctant to change despite the majority of the multi national group embracing the changing market.

    I worked at npower

    Pros

    Good, friendly and knowledgable employees

    Cons

    An inability by senior management to make decisions due to a heavily silo'd yet interdependent organisation that is totally lacking joined up priorities and in many cases co-operation. Long serving managers are obsessed with governance to the extent that when this is combined with the silo organisation results in a lack of timely and effective joined up action.

    Pros

    local employer in the North of England. Nice not to have to go to London. Large client base with some interesting industry challenges.

    1970s male dominated culture. Tolerates poor behaviours and is an old boys club at the most senior level. Senior roles taken by consultants and teams of contractors - many of the contractors having worked for senior management at other organisations.
