    The buildings are falling apart Canteen is horrible People have been here for donkey’s years and think they know best despite having no experience outside of British Gas not the Energy sector (check out LinkedIn for the lifers there) Lots of red tape Senior management are all over the place The culture is very much ‘old boys club’ The way they manage you is to make you feel upset and talk you as if you’re a child

    I worked at British Gas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People are great in general

    Cons

    Directors and Senior Management are clueless, when trying to diversify a business to meet changing customer requirements, you need to have the knowledge, skill, experience and most of all the competence to drive through positive change and bring the staff with you, these people are like headless chickens. Change people or change people not at staff level as they keep trying that and it does not work, need new leadership and fresh blood at director level These people do not understand the business's they are trying to run and commerciality is poor, the brand is good but you need to do more in a changing and highly competitive environment Lack of respect for staff, listen to the people doing the job and interacting with your customers you might learn something

    Used to be a great place to work, but over the years it has gotten worse and worse. Job cuts, bonus cuts and poor senior management who are willing to take bonus’s even when the company isn’t doing well.

    Pros

    32 hour week from May to August

    Cons

    The rest of it. All stemming from a clueless senior management that are the cause of all the problems that employees have to deal with. A toxic culture all over the business and the inept management are incapable of changing it. That is why their employees are leaving in droves. If you do end up getting a job at British Gas you will need to leave your morales at the door

    Senior management are clueless to the point it would be laughable if it wasn’t for the destruction of the company They state customer obsessed - this couldn’t be further from the truth Employees are made to feel like robots and nothing matters other than the bottom line Poor marketing campaigns with boring offers Lack of leadership or vision from above a once amazing company destroyed

    I worked at British Gas full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are fantastic their apart from senior management, the colleagues I worked with were tight knit and like family and the support during tough times was brilliant. The salary is good but not worth the pressures it brings

    Cons

    Disgusting senior management. The job your told to do does not reflect the job title Priorities are strictly financially based rather than working on structure and listing to feedback from frontline colleagues . If your not a manager or any senior management your words or feedback means nothing and you don't have a leg to stand on. The systems are oudated the style in which the process the site uses is out of date and and far old school. Their is no modern approach or colleagues interest looked at.
