Pros

It seems that everyone in Centrica has been everywhere else. The best part of this network is that the employee base is highly skilled and have good backgrounds. The company is often signing agreements to work with consultancies and other third parties, so regardless of your career aspirations, there is an opportunity to realise it here. Recent collaborations include KPMG, Ernst and Young, PWC and Capgemini.
Great work life balance (9-5) is common, onsite gym, good restaurant etc...

Cons

As with every single organisation, the onus is on the employee to source opportunities, manage development, find projects and build a career.

The best people often speak of rising about challenges and going beyond the call of duty. The graduate scheme gives you an opportunity to work across the entire UK business.

For career progression, I would advise finding opportunities outside the organisation after 3 years of service. Things change at a slow pace and you can easily fall into a routine.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is sometimes difficult for management teams to dedicate time and effort to employee engagement, however, this is key to ensure employees are kept motivated and feel that they are contributing to the overall business goal.
