    I have been working at Centrica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for career development (up to a certain level)

    Cons

    Poor systems which can be intolerably slow and outdated
    Weak decision making with little business planning
    Lack of straight talk and honesty from the leaders
    Cumbersome and top heavy management
    Too much time is spent reporting/spinning a story rather than actioning a plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the structure and speak honestly with employees. Develop a strategy that gives customers what they want...
