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

    Pros

    + Good benefits at L6+ (senior manager) + Huge organisation (your experience can vary depending on who you work for) + Some very experienced staff in their own field slowly leaving + Decent parking +Looks good on your CV

    Cons

    - Terrible restructuring strategy as no one seems to know what they are doing - Management still living in 1995 insuring their survival within their own little monopolies - Old management not aligned to business strategy - Chronic disconnect between leadership and management who simply dont know what is going on - No doers left now only politicians from the old boys club - Career opportunities only if you... belong to one of the clubs - precisely why the business is suffering

    Advice to Management

    +Complete clear out of the whole management structure and replace with new talent who deliver results not sell that reptile brand of oil +Know whats going on, don't rely on the illusions our masters ask us to create for your viewing pleasure +Know the difference - people make 1's into 5's and you don't even know the difference +Dont gloss over problems or encourage us to tuck them away, address them +No culture... or values - just make it look good is always the order of the day +Sorry cant see this business surviving as it is, sell it I say and let someone do something with it
