Call Centre Manager in Cardiff Gate
on 15 May 2022
Top company with plenty of benefits
Great place to be work, but be prepared to work hard. Benefits are great. Just gone through huge changes, not 100% sure if they were right for customers, but certainly correct for the company

Let down by management
Good work and people but let down by management issues and corporate sell outs followed by redundancies and closure of head office putting 3000 people out of work
Complaints Manager, SSE in Perth, Perth and Kinross
on 4 May 2022
A decent place to work but nepotism and favouritism is rife throughout the organisation.
I was well paid during my time with the company it always surprised me at how many people have the same surname. The company had discovered Lean 15 years everyone else and tend to use, it’s a slow moving organisation that doesn’t deal with change very well.

Good training, nice work but some frustration
SSE, was a good company to work for. However there was quite a bit of non productive time due to IT issues in the crack office. I can only be honest and say things went down hill rapidly once OVO took over, it became clear early on that they were not overly interested in the bulk of SSE’s systems.

A clear vision and ethical business
My career in SSE IT has been enjoyable and challenging. The business is expanding rapidly, which means there is often a lot to do and some gaps. It's sometimes difficult to establish ownership of certain services and there is clearly work to do to improve IT in some areas. However the SMT is strong and has a clear vision for technology as an enabler to meeting our wider business goals. The people are friendly, the culture strong and work/life balance, although challenging at times, generally falls in the right direction.
