During my time at EDF, I was tuaght how to manage the stress of a working enviornment and shown how to work well in a team and independantly. The typical day consisted of different problem solving tasks and introductions of different areas within the company. The workplace was a very pleasant place to be a part of as it was very welcoming and had a warm atmosphere. The most difficult part was having to push yourself to work things out that are outside of your comfort zone however all the activities were fun and enjoyable.

Worked for edf energy security for 11 years, was great for the first 3 years then implementations made things really bad. A lot of bullying, belittling and bitter staff made up an awful environment.
So glad I have to never see or hear from the place again. (Dnb) petty backstabbing and minor issues are escalated by mentally unstable ex services staff and bitter ex police who never .made it

I enjoy my work as I like to knuckle down and do what I can where possible. The management I have on nights make my working night relaxed and a nice environment to work! the colleagues I have are easy to get along with. hardest part of the job is probably the real heavy lifting at times but it's never a task you can't do as people are so nice and willing to help. most enjoyable part is knowing your satisfaction after the completion of a difficult task!
Pros
great competitive pay rates
Cons
not many reall

EDF are a good company to work for. Customer services background is a bonus. There are certain targets you need to meet as part of the job.
You have to bill accounts, explain bills to customers and book appointments for Smart meters.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Targets

There are a lot of opportunities at EDF, however the pace of change is very slow and stymied by endless levels of approvals. There is a difficult scheme for raises and promotions that make working in a single career track not very inviting.

I had the pleasure of having very good management and teams around me. It was hard to see these talented individuals be held back by the bureaucracy of the project and company.

Training was intense but fun at the same time and that's the only good thing I have to say about EDF Doxford. Next to no training on the computer systems though. When you go live you are really thrown into the Marianas Trench, never mind the deep end.

Managment give you no backup on the job and are a bunch of backstabbers who'd sooner throw you under the bus than help you achieve anything!! Do not trust anybody in a position of authority.


My advice is to stay clear of this company for the good of your own mental and physical health. Saw to many break downs in that God forsaken place.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

The company truly cares about the mission they have set forth and their employees are always seen as a great asset. Usually only hire French speakers but they make exceptions and offer to give out French classes to those that are interested.

Very corporate

In the first few years, fantastic until EDF got a hold on the London Electricity company it bought out along with SWEB and SEEB. Then it all went down hill, this is the only job in my entire life that almost did me in completely. Face fits environment, extremely cliquey.
Pros

Cons
As per my review, and more

Great company! but limited career growth. Management communication needs to improve. Focus is also needed on career advancement of millennials within corporate functions.
