No opinion of CEO

I have been working at British Gas full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Well paid at all levels, lots of employee support and training available. Once outside of the call centre the environment changes - lots of autonomy and you do feel like you are contributing. Flexible working available in some roles - home working for example.

Cons

Senior leadership team change frequently, re-organisations are frequent (although lots of support and options if affected). Lots of "just do it" instructions from SLT
