    Pros

    As with most companies there are the good and bad managers. I'd say BG Group as plenty of both. They do emulate larger companies and really try to develop better employees.

    Cons

    Very strange office politics and it takes a while to get used to the British business culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead from the front.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
