    I worked at British Gas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great career over a decade whilst working there. Under the regime of Phil Bentley (former MD), there was excellent growth, and that provided progression..
    Good pension scheme, excellent company car options, healthcare plan, great colleagues

    Cons

    Current culture of disregard for staff, cost cutting without thinking of actual consequence.. Current morale is very low at all levels including managerial.
    Too much bureaucracy and internal politics, with processes created for the sake of them being there, and no actual benefit.. Input seems to be taken away from management team too..
    Salary lower than competition, Manager bonus scheme seems to become harder to achieve in an attempt to cut costs

    Advice to Management

    Remember the culture and people that made British Gas who they are today.. Put people before shareholders..

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at British Gas.

    Interview

    Online assessment. Telephone interview. Assessment day. Waiting now for over 6 months to hear back even though I am supposed to be accepted. Still being strung along and waiting with no contact
