    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.
