Company's repeatedly breaks working time directive. Working hours are completely ridiculous the HSE has placed an improvement notice on this company due to the excessive hours the field force engineers are literally forced to work constantly. FATIGUE is the largest problem at this company senior management cover thier ears and pretend its not happening. People off long term sick in every patch due to stress. New contracts pay about 10 grand less than New ones for more work

Boring and poorly managed
This company is very poorly managed. The managers haven’t got a clue what they’re doing. The processes change every two minutes and the managers don’t keep you updated. It’s a not what you know but who you know company. Lots of favouritism in regards to contracts. I was often expected to do things that weren’t in my job description and wasn’t paid enough for me to stay motivated in this role. The team itself made it better as they’re all very friendly and easy to get on with. The management and processes just let this company down massively
Gas Engineer in Islington, Greater London
This is a company who treats their employees like dog S*** . They bend the rules to suit them. No rewards. No control over your bonus. Undervalued. Underpaid. No travel time. Sexist managers. Poor work life balance. Leaving this company two months ago was the best thing I’ve done.

Overall a poor place to work
local management good. Higher management clueless and heartless towards workforce. Also a good company to work for before cadent took over. They have stripped us of a number of things I.e:
Share save scheme
Bonus incentive scheme
To name a few
Struggling to see how there are any good reviews on here obviously not workforce. Must be paid to input on here just to make look good. Really disheartening company to work for. New cadent g contract for new starters even worse. Honestly money not too dissimilar to tesco or meter fitting. If you have a gas safe qualification befter of working for another gas company or local ouncil

Not quiet National Grid
Use to be a great company to work for when we was national grid.
After becoming cadent they’ve stripped us of all incentives and benefits.
Took away our:
-Share save scheme
-Call out tiers
- bonus schemes becoming worse
-new contracts which are basically zero hour contracts.
And the list goes on, they even took away something as small as coffee machines in our depots. Don’t know how much longer
