    I have been working at Centrica full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive, end user technology is good. The company gets a lot of bad press however internally, they are really trying to be customer obsessed and do the right thing. Good strong values, depending on the role, there is a lot of flexibility about how and where you do your job.

    Cons

    Strategy isn’t always well communicated and it’s sometimes down to chance if you find things out.

    Advice to Management

    Share more, be clear and drive everyone in the same direction..
