    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

    I worked at British Gas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company has good benefits available to make working there attractive. There is also opportunity to make a career within the company due to the size and number of positions available.

    Cons

    over recent years there have been too many cuts and a lack of real direction from leadership resulting in a low moral workforce. Once this poor phase is over I am sure it will improve again.
