Refreshing and fun place to work, where ethics and work is valued
There's a buzz about the company, from the ethos of what they are achieving, to the decor of the offices ( eg an indoor treehouse and slide as a meeting space, to the inspiring people that work there. Everyone has a part to play and there is a real sense that its the employees that are part of the success. Management is pretty good, and they respect your opinions in an ever changing atmosphere. You have to keep up, and are encouraged to actively contribute. If you do well (and are liked) there is plenty of opportunity for bonuses and career progression,I loved working there!It was interesting dealing with a level of ambiguity in processes, and all the different working systems and platforms that are also changing often. But be prepared for a lack of parking on site meaning a daily hunt for a kerbside parking space with a walk into the city centre.

Best company I have ever worked for
OVO has been a lovely place to work over the past couple of years and have been really helpful around my maternity leave.
My Managers have been very supportive and if i have had any issues they have been readily resolved through additional training or extra time with them.

Treats you well for a business, but still a business
The company does seem to make a sincere effort to treat you as well as they can within the limitations of being a business. But it's still very much a business, and if in a given situation the only sensible business decision is to shaft you, they're quite ready to do that. Although they do seem reasonably good at avoiding that where possible.
Meter Reader in Swindon, Wiltshire
With ovo buying out SSE only 4 months ago and have decided to make redundant 2600 members of staff and closing the meter business as of end of June which is the team I am part of is hugely disappointing.
Worked as a consultant - very stressful environment
worked there as an IT consultant. I found the guy I was reporting to to be micromanaging and controlling. Not a very enjoyable experience at all. I was glad to leave.
