The best place I have ever worked

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I love my job. I have been working for Magnox for 3 years and it is the best job I have ever had. The people I work with make the place a fun and exciting place to work and I haven’t once dreaded going in every morning. The hours are brilliant and my work life balance is great. My only complaint is that as an apprentice I don’t get to work overtime there or get the company bonus. Luckily the pay is extremely good for apprentices and goes up very often. The management is good, my manager specifically is lovely and supports me in everything I do. There are some very smart people who can teach you a lot and have a laugh at the same time. I love it there and would recommend it to anyone.


Good pay, good hours, nice environment


Apprentices don’t get bonuses or overtime

Culture changed

Culture has shifted from presentism one to a flexible one after the pandemic. All depends who you line manager is though, you’ll be either really supported and developed well, or not supported at all and not developed.

Weak Leadership & Prehistoric Working Patterns

Weak leadership with prehistoric views of working patterns with limited flexibility to perform work from home. The salary and benefits cannot compete with private companies operating in the same sector. The career advancement opportunities are painfully slow.A short stint of 18-24 months may give you some worthwhile experience, however I would not recommend a long term career. Many of the longer serving members of staff openly say that the company is a retirement home.

not a fast paced environment, but compliance and safety were main priorities

Good company to work for. Good salary and benefits. Broad experience gained over the years there. Opportunities to move fields and or locations if required

People are the greatest asset

People are the greatest asset at Magnox without a doubt. The role is varied and you can either really challenge yourself, or not. You really have the potential shine in this organisation. The company are leading the way in nuclear cleanup of their 12 Sites in the the UK with safety of people and the environment always at the forefront. Pay across two sites should align with the other ten and management are aware.

Involved in another round of Compulsory Redundancies

Hard work but well rewarded. Another day of Redundancies. Management are approachable. Holidays and benefits are good. Most enjoyable part of job is working with the people that are in my team.

Friendly and Pro-active

Good work/life balance, challenging environment. Innovative place to work, with numerous projects and programmes being carried out. At times projects can be difficult to move forward as mostly new techniques are being used.

Long days, reducing workforce.

Dynamic site programme at Bradwell not replicated across the wider estate

Magnox is an excellent company to work for with safe delivery and care for its workers being the top priority. The Nuclear decommissioning industry is currently in something of a state of flux owing to the very poor contract award for the Parent Body Organisation. With a new executive structure due to take charge in 2019, the priority must be on the effectiveness of current site plans which, as they stand are unaffordable and undeliverable; as well as the strategic coordination and accountability for the delivery of those plans and the communication of them to the wider workforce such that it is understood which elements are critical for overall delivery. The delivery of Bradwell into its decommissioned state has been described as a “monumental accomplishment”, and the industry has not thus far done a good job in learning the lessons from its delivery.


Good work life understanding

Productive; Challenging

A Typical Day at work, would best be described as' spinning plates' in a very controlled manor. Everyday in this industry is a school day, and at times it feels like it is constant flux. Managing Subcontract labour is common on these construction sites. The most Challenging part of the work is trying to line up all the ducks to try to deliver on time. The most enjoyable is when you hit a long term goal.

Various jobs

Good places and bad places, depends on the task. The site is closing slowly due to it being decommissioned although it may be extended and a new unit built

Enjoyed my work experience here.

Worked in the maintenance workshop and the systems office for 2 weeks of work experience in secondary school and it allowed me an insight into the workplace and health and safety protocols while completing jobs efficiently.
