    I worked at Centrica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Thanks to a really dedicated Graduate Team, Centrica offers a competitive grad program in the UK. The company benefits are better than average (flexible benefits scheme, work from home options, flexible hours, etc.) Highly recommended to those who want to start their career with a massive blue-chip organisation then Centrica

    Cons

    People are leaving because of re-organisation. Contributions rarely get appreciated by the management team. Senior manager vacancies almost always get filled by external hires, meaning lack of growth opportunities within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on one priority - you cannot cut the budget and demand a higher service performance at the same time!
