I worked at British Gas full-time (More than 8 years)
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
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..
I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at British Gas.
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
