      Great career development with the right team at British Gas

      Oct 29, 2019 - Anonymous Employee in Staines, England, England

      Pros

      The benefits of working there were great e.g. on-site gym, tax-free allowance, flexible hours for work-life balance. With the right manager and team they set you up on a career development plan which was worthwile and set me up for my next role. Pay is good and bonus scheme is fair and relative to your performance throughout the year. Opportunity to move between departments is encouraged and therefore great for experience.

      Cons

      Very regimented and structed business with lots of processes and therefore can make the work mundane and boring at times.
