Dreadful management. Very much looking after their siblings rather than the old boys. Again I will say nasty hypocritical management .Drunken teachers.

Busy & Productive with a fairly relaxed atmosphere
Overall, I'd say it was a good productive & busy environment to work and very technical in learning the information within the industry, for Waste & Fresh Water Services. Working alongside managers & colleagues throughout, whilst developing to become a senior team member, in helping & supporting management with training & supporting new/existing employees. Focusing on delivering excellent customer service & explaining complex matters in a simple form, adding useful information & updating customers, which involved taking ownership & communicating with other deparnents & contractors to get things resolved & for information needed.

Broken infrastructure
Southern water has never had a working IT for the length of time I have worked for it. Always going to be fixed soon, but never actually is resolved. Canteens are hit and miss and expensive.

Disgraceful company.
PROS: 1. Helping a customer who has been disadvantaged by Southern Water or it’s assets in some way or another. 2. You would meet some genuine people who have met the same unfortunate fate of joining the company. CONS: 1. Complete and total negligence of upper management in fundamental areas of the business (e.g. investment, training, quality control, etc). 2. I’ll say it again. Diabolical management. Big bonuses to all the big cats is prioritised over financially supporting departments and teams that are in such desperate need of help, not only due to severely outdated equipment, but also to hire more employees so that there is less strain on those who are expected to sail a sinking ship. 3. Terribly unethical HR department. I have never witnessed such a disgusting display of favouritism and greed within a company before. Several of my peers have been cheated out of holiday hours/pay, maternity benefits and have witnessed multiple witch hunts that have had people fired over embarrassingly petty reasons. 4. IT equipment. You have not seen anything quite as shocking as the pathetic computers and ‘programmes’ that is somehow utilised in this company. It’s as if they’ve found some of the first prototypes of the computer, loaded it with viruses and then threw them down several flights of stairs. There is no excuse. 5. Blame culture. So, typically the company is devoid of any ownership or integrity, so each time anything goes wrong (which is a painfully regular occurrence) there is a endless cycle of different parties blaming each other instead of actually solving the problem at hand. 5. Empty promises to tackle the major issues the company faces - yet nothing ever changes. This has been the case for more than a decade, so I’ve learned. ADVICE TO MANAGEMENT: Get rid of the stubborn directors that currently have a suffocating grip on the company’s money, management decisions, processes and assets. Clearly no one listens to the cries for help from the front-line departments that are responsible for the day to day running of the business.
