    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Certas Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been made to feel incredibly welcome and supported by colleagues since starting my role. Despite the numerous locations, everyone is approachable and friendly making it feel more like a 'local' business rather than the large, regional business it actually is. The last 12 months have been challenging for any role but the leadership team have been appreciative of efforts and are keeping staff informed with regular updates. The health and safety and HR teams have been applying a safety F1rst culture to help reassure those returning back to office or site working.

    Cons

    It is very busy, and can sometimes feel that there is a lot going on at once. Part of this is related to the pandemic and constant demands and pressure that this has placed on most businesses.

    I worked at Certas Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great business infrastructure, competitive pricing allowing for effective business development. Talent programme and executive development a plus. Some great people with the right attitude across all departments. Come up with good ideas, but also persist with some poor ones!

    Cons

    Senior management lacking the personal touch and are out of touch, members of middle management more concerned with empire building than actually helping to develop the business properly. A lot of sales staff collecting high wages despite a poor work ethic. False economy on sales reporting, large bonuses getting paid despite a large number of deliveries making a loss. Marketing thinking they run the place can be draining. Political games being played constantly, creating disharmony and an unsettling environment. Management don’t keep confidence on personal matters, with conversations repeated to others in an open office! Loyal servants rubbished the minute they leave the company. Very selfish culture exists within sales, everyone talks about each other behind their backs. They rip off customers to extreme levels and lie about it.
