National Grid experience report

  • 24.Jul 2018
  • Employee

Not impressed with anything about this company

2.56

Company Culture

Harassment and cronyism are alive and well. And both run deep.

Support from management

Manager was great but his hands were tied up in the burocracy.

Teamwork

Conflicting processes. Old vs new teams stepping on each other.

Internal Communication

People try to communicate but their knowledgebase is not used to the fullest extent because of old processes from relics of managers who performed their best work at the turn of the century

Gender Equality

They have finally made this initiative to hire more women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The okder folks are treated well

Career Development

Never offered any training.

Overall compensation for your work

They paid me like a junior and expected me to make decisions as a director.

Office / Work Environment

Open space. No private cubes. Expensive cafeteria.

Work-Life Balance

Work from home is allowed but in some cases frowned upon. 10 to 14 meetings per day Are the norm and med management tells us to prioritize. Nights and weekends are often taken up as well.

Job Security

That is the only reason why I lasted 18 months but many have been laid off since I left

Handicapped Accessibility

Not nearly enough stand up desks.

Workplace Safety

They are big on this

Challenging Work

Impossible to succeed because the processes are immature.

Inclusive / Diverse

As a lesbian I had a male manager harass me unmercifully. It was reported to his manager but he kept it up because his manager never discussed it with him.
