8.5 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 22 ratings in 2015)
"RWE npower is one of the Big Six gas and electricity suppliers."
Pros: 
  • Colleagues are hard-working, friendly and always supportive of graduates
  • A rotation system means that graduates are exposed to a range of business areas
  • Graduates are given real responsibility and ownership of important projects
  • Starting salaries are very good in comparison with other companies, as is the work/life balance
Cons: 
  • Due to the size and technical nature of the organisation, graduates may be overwhelmed at first
  • Certain systems within the organisation are slow and somewhat outdated
  • Graduates may have to move location every 6 months meaning it can be hard to settle
  • Some may feel that adding extra structure and objectives to each rotation would aid graduate development
