    I have been working at British Gas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great and the staff are pretty much all really easy to talk to and work with. If you have potential and work hard you are rewarded and recognised for your efforts, which is refreshing. Being full time gives you flexibility with work hours/locations and there are plenty of opportunities for business networking. Upper-managerial staff communicate regularly with their staff and pay attention to the requests and concerns of their employees.

    Cons

    Open plan offices are horribly noisy, and with teams spread across sites it's awfully hard to get everyone in the same room, or on a quiet teleconference. The food and drink on sale in the staff canteen is massively overpriced and not very good quality. Diversity awareness training is dated and heterosexist, focuses almost entirely on race and physical disability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get DMU in to administer Diversity, Discrimination & Ethics training that actually covers the myriad of things that people should be aware of instead of just a few incorrectly discussed buzzwords. Consider finding a better Information Systems team - the company we use currently is overpriced and ineffective.

    Pros

    The people are generally very talented.
     Facilities are also good, including a gym, cafeteria and coffee shops. Also a shuttle bus from the station is provided.
    Generally the sallery offered is competitive.
    Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Hard work not always recognised.
    Decisions made at top level are not always filtered down.
    Process's can hinder creativity.
    Too many project managers and not enough people doing things.
    PDP talked about allot but not always actioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal growth should be talked about more. More room for internal progression.
    Simplify process's to get things done quicker.
    Consider possible failure as not being a reason not to do something.
