    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at EDF full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some very skilled engineers working at Barnwood, very technical and very friendly. Despite all the work distractions and being surrounded by incompetent contractors/ glorified PAs and other non technical roles, they do work hard and know what they're doing.

    Cons

    Depressing atmosphere and workplace, too many glorified PAs,, HR were useless and a nightmare, management constantly over engineers. No ambition. Located in the outskirts of Gloucester, nothing to do on week days or weekends. If you are a graduate avoid this place.

    I have been working at EDF full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company itself seems to treat its employees well. Makes efforts to listen to employees

    Cons

    Management, at least in operations, seems to prefer outside hires vs promoting within. Which is pretty demotivating

    Pros

    The company really puts employees first. Throughout recent months, their first thoughts have been for the safety of their employees. They offer great packages, benefits and perks and the senior team are engaged.

    Cons

    Cant think of many - perhaps still a lot of management tiers that may not be needed.
