Service Manager in Warwick, Warwickshire
on 9 February 2021
Bad Experience
Totally disappointed with my experience. Started off great. Management is poor, Square pegs in round holes come to mind around the staff. Throw more work at you without reward. Forced to work in different locations or there was not a role for you!!!Blame culture, staff taking credit for the work you have completed

Culture
I found the culture to be unsupportive and lack of openness and collaboration. There is a great deal of talk regarding diversity, bringing your whole self to work. Personally I did not experience this. Additionally work life balance does not exist in IT.

Where IT Careers go to die
Imagine putting the most incompetent group of IT professionals together, and then heading them up with an hugely incompetent set of managers, and you have National Grid. Weak middle managers who have been promoted out of their depth, and can't even manage their team - let alone lead it - and are more interested in building their empire/self-promotion than progressing their team’s success.Couple this with a level of a team of people who do not know IT (which often manifests itself as aggression by staff who are completely out of their depth and think shouting their way out of a situation is the way to go).Truly appalling place to work, could have been so much more, but the culture is absolutely toxic, and is allowed to continue to be so by weak management. No desire to strive for excellence, or even get close to good, and any suggestion of improvement is met with resistance and "This is how we've always done it". Unless you’ve only a couple of years left of working, and fancy an easy life coasting to retirement, don’t contemplate a role at National Grid.
