I worked at Centrica as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Friendly and supportive team in a growing area of the business. They were more than willing to show me the ropes and help me learn new things about the industry.

Cons

Location outside of London in Staines made me feel isolated. Especially as a marketing intern, the corporate culture in their vapid business park offices didn't really inspire me to think creatively. This opinion was cemented after visiting several agencies we work with in central London.

    I have been working at Centrica as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large organisation, great for an intern new to the corporate world in its entirety. Friendly staff who are supportive and seem to genuinely care about your development.

    Cons

    Very political in nature, often hard to tell who actually has your interests at heart. A bit too laid back in nature and an excessive emphasis on work/life balance. Not really exciting for a graduate who is actually keen to work.

    I worked at Centrica as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved my experience with the company - great office atmosphere and everyone I met was so friendly. As a 'mere' summer intern I expected people not to bother with me and leave me get on with my project but most days I was meeting some one new. Everyone I met was was always very approachable, genuinely interested in what I was working on and always offering their help.

    As part of my project I had to interview employees throughout the company at all levels of seniority - I expected a lot of rejections but everyone was happy to help and through speaking to them learnt the reason behind their move to Centrica - everyone is incredibly passionate about the company!

    Cons

    I was working outside of the IT department for my summer placement and was looking to move into this department for a graduate placement. I got the general opinion that the rest of the company does not consider the IT department to be worthwhile - even other interns made quips about them.
