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

Pros

Good people to work with and flexible atmosphere. Very accommodating and potential for vast experience to be gained.

Cons

Insular in nature and sometimes confused as to what operating model to be bench-marked against with other companies due to the gigantic operating model in various sectors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider benchmarking performance targets against external contemporaries for each business unit against their competitors rather than grouping everything together and comparing against the one that matters at the time.
