“I would advise against working for this company”

I did not have a happy time working at Yorkshire Water, but I will admit they do have some areas that they excel in. The pay is okay and the management okay. There were not many opportunities to progress your career futher.

The worst thing is being treated like you are not a valued member of staff. There is a lack of personal management style and consequently I was made to feel like a number, like a cog in the wheel.

I would advice against working here as you are treated like a number.

“Rather find something else”

Pros: There are some aspects of the company that is good. There is sufficient training for new employees and nice colleagues. The work itself is very interesting and might be worth sticking around for if this is the type of field you’re interested in.

Cons: Management seems to think of the employees as a bunch of mechanical robots employed just to do a job and then go home after. They never interact with staff other than to complain about them. Most of these managers are extremely unpleasant people. If you don’t need work desperately, rather hold out and find something else.

Unusual thing: Overly qualified people are employed here.

We manage the collection, treatment and distribution of water in Yorkshire, supplying around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water each day - that's a lot of water. At the same time we also collect, treat and dispose of about one billion litres of waste water safely back into the environment. To do this we operate more than 700 water and sewage treatment works and 120 reservoirs. We look after 62,000 miles of water and sewerage mains - enough pipework to circulate the earth! But we're about much more than just water and sewerage services. We're one of Yorkshire's largest landowners and have opened a lot of our land for our customers to enjoy. As one of Yorkshire's biggest companies we work closely with local communities. Through our latest community campaign 'Hands Up' we're creating sustainable gardens and allotments in primary schools across Yorkshire. Our vision is Taking responsibility for the water environment for good. We have also developed five supporting 'values' which help us to shape the way we behave and make decisions on our way towards this vision: We pull together - We work together for a shared vision We plan ahead - We look beyond today's challenges to create tomorrow's solutions We can't do this on our own - We recognise that strong relationships will help us build a better future. We think outside the pipes - We think and act creatively We all make a difference - Each one of us plays an important part in achieving our vision.
