    I worked at Centrica full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    wouldn't say pros - salary competitive, benefits - at best ok

    Cons

    Most toxic work place ever in my career. Managed by fools incapable of direction or strategy. Happy to bait and switch customers. If you are looking to derail your career or go to a company run by religious zealots - this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    go do something else, you've ruined a lot of peoples careers, and you are deceptive to customers. Think PETA principle, the guys in UK don't know what fools they hired

    Pros

    A great company with a huge spectrum of businesses, technology exposure and opportunity. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    The various parts of the company are not very aligned to single strategy. Career growth is always self driven with very little guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Make the employees part of the decesiob making process. Be in touch with the beat of the employees

    I worked at Centrica full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, no pressure, very relaxed management. You won't get sacked unless you kill someone

    Cons

    You are waiting on dead mens shoes. The management don't exercise any of the company's policies. They are carrying a lot of dead wood and if you want to progress your career, there are no opportunities. HR are absolutely useless. They won't answer the phone or respond to emails as they are completely incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Make your managers manage. Make them put the dead wood on PIP's and mange people properly rather than the broad brush approach and paying people to retire early. Scrap your 'waste of time' "levels" and treat people based on merit. It really isn't hard!
