Not the easiest place to work, but very freindly. The company is going through a huge change in work methods. Any comment that I make here is likely to be out of date.

Treated like battery hens with call out pizza disguised as ‘welfare’ when in-fact it’s an incentive to stay late when THEY NEED YOU for their KPI’s to be met during storm conditions. In addition to lukewarm pizza, the time and half offered is a real tug for the old purse strings with the hourly rate being so rubbish compared to other companies. Most employees in the contact centre are fairly nice, I’d say some are lovely but the few cockerels who spend the majority of their time discussing office politics during their extended smoking breaks actually pollute the place with their cocker-doodle-doing. It doesn’t matter how many eggs a hen lays, if their face doesn’t fit then it’ll be stopped from progressing until pushed out of the cage. The amount of gossip that fly’s around the place is contaminated and can be very personal. Salmonella at its worst on occasions. Some (not all) of the big cockerel’s who roost at the top of the office, otherwise known as ‘the management’, have been seen to look down on the hens and add to the bacteria that spreads with the contamination. Be warned and be wary! There’s no work life balance, no flexi and no support towards dependants. So, if you have chicks or old hens to care for, you’ll struggle without taking annual leave (unless there’s a weather storm and they need you; then its different farm yard. Then they’ll almost open the cages and allow you to be free-range so they get enough eggs to deliver on their stats). My advice is this, unless you’re a pedigree hen and get offered a job it won’t be a career, contrary to what you're - more...

Out of date for the modern workplace. Difficult to have drive when the foreground is very flat. There is a culture of protecting information that should be readily accessible to all as required.

Very busy environment to work in. Learned how to manage a crisis situation in an incident where people had no electricity due to severe weather. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing how far I came in the time I spent there
Pros
Good Benefits package
Cons
long hours required

Sadly the company is not good at supporting staff who have young families and wish to work flexibly. this is from personal experience. however the job and pay/benefit package is exceptionally good. If you are a career driven and do not mind working unsociable hours then this could be the business for you
Pros
benefits package
Cons
not family friendly

I worked at ENW for 16yrs and during my time there got some very good training and promotions. I would recommend to anyone as a company to work for.

For those willing to progress within this company there are good opportunities. In my experience it is a meritocracy and employees can rightfully feel that they are providing a key service to customers throughout the North West of England.
Pros
Meritocracy
Cons
Too heavily unionised for my liking
