Decent

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good job, pays well. Only left due to another opportunity which was more inline with what I wanted to do. Would recommend working at sigma if you are unsure what you want to do. Career progression is good

Keep well away

Sounds great when you start . But they soon change things , dept , rolls with no warning. Say there’s help but there isn’t. Can not wait to leave here.

Only here because it’s WFH

You have to adhere to lunch and break times otherwise you get in trouble. The managers are very rude and always speak down to you. If you take 2 minutes off calls because you need a breather, you get your name plastered in the main chat where all other colleagues are in and you get belittled. We are supposed to have a performance review with our manager every month but we never get one, only expect a call from your manager if you have taken 1 minute longer break

Avoid at all cost !

Hmmmm.So what you do in the training is completely different to when you go on the live call! Your not taught everything! 2 weeks training is not long enough ! i applied for customer service , they end up putting me in collection … to me it’s like a sales role … all the care about is hitting targets every second . They just put you straight into live calls with no assistances , no one to help you along the way , when you do go for help you have to wait 15mins . I believe the managers just care about their bonuses. Trust me if you hate sales don’t bother working here , as it like a sales job basically. Even when you take a break you have to message the even when you take your already ARRANGED SCHEDULE BREAK! You then how to notify them every time your back , every time your doing something, you have to notify them ! If your wrap time is little over time they will be on your back . It like working with police . Completely different from every call centre job I have ever worked in , one of the worst ! And they pay chicken Change for the work you have to do ! Not worth it ! If you don’t like stress …. Don’t apply ! i was on the octopus energy campaign! I quit ! Loads of people dropped out the training group ! Because they saw sense faster than I did ! howver I stayed 3 days after training … and left!

Poor place to work

This is not a great work environment they are uncaring about mental health and management will try and bully you out of the job if you mention your struggles. Every department is so unprofessional. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone if anything RUN and don’t apply

You are expected to adhere to strict targets and if they aren't reached itbis a strick against your probation managers are not nice and when asking for help you wait for 15 mins or longer

Stressful place to work

I would dread every morning having to work here due to the lack of support and help. Most of my team were lovely but we were all new and inexperienced.

Pros

Nice collegues

Cons

Rude customers

Eon-next

I have worked in other roles within the company and since joining this project with EON-Next, I am shocked.The department is managed by leaders who lack really understanding, they have forced front line staff to manage training groups and they themselves are new to the job. I actually feel sorry for the customers.

Disorganised & underpaid with Shell Energy @ Sigma

Not sure where to start with this company… The training provided was ok, until you actually get on the phones and realise that the training related to nothing like actually going live on the phones. On our training group, from the new starters, 6 members of staff left before we even completed training, there was 11 of us so more than half. I became to realise that staff retention is extremely poor.Management are rude, disrespectful and extremely unprofessional. The company in general pay low salaries and lengthy hours with little or no support. Not many rush to do overtime as there is no incentives to do so.

Poor

The people you work with are amazing, bonuses and other 'benefits' unreachable, there are no benefits unfortunately. Not many people stick it out and leave within weeks. No work life balance.

Awful place to work

Worked on the Scottish Power contract. Micro managed, high targets to reach. Constantly marked down, TM’s speak down to you. Every part of your work is monitored. Horrible phone calls! Very stressful. Short breaks! Your mental health is affected so badly. They want every ounce out of you. Back to back calls, by the end of your shift you are so tired and mentally drained!!

Pros

None

Cons

Target driven, very hard to meet the targets that are set. Micro managed. Managers speak down to you.

Awful - avoid at all costs....

From ops manager to team Leader, your nothing but a number, your lied to constantly, no way to progress. You are promised training - never get it , promised support - never get it, constantly micro managed by a TL who has no knowledge just wants to tick boxes, you are not valued. HR do not respond with out several emails chasing them, ops managers are useless, only care about targets not customers.

Pros

9 to 5 wfh

Cons

Awful management, no support, HR never respond.

A good place to work

Nice colleagues and a good work atmosphere. Always able to ask your colleagues for help. There is opportunity for progression and when you start there is a comprehensive training programme and also ongoing training The only drawback is micro managed by management.

Pros

Bonuses and overtime available Different campaigns Hour lunch

Cons

Demanding work 23 minute break

Awful, terrible, frustrating place to work

I started in a 9-5 role for this company. Who since then have tried tried do a complete bait and switch. Trying to make me work more hours than my contracted with the lie of overtime. Constantly calling into questing my commitment to the job because I finish at 5pm and don't do more hours for free, because quote "we're a family and family put in the work to help each other". There's no support, no help, and bad management. Who seem to think their job is just writing the same message in our teams chat 15 times a day, but when you need help they are like ghosts.If you enjoy being lied to, bad pay, having no support, dealing with company sickophants, and the constant pressure to have no life outside of this company. Then this is the place for you.

Pros

Some of the people there are lovely. It's a shame they work for this company

Cons

Bad management, awful company, bad work life balance, low pay, high stress, no support, commitments questioned, glorified call centre

Long hours, poor salary, management
