      I have been working at Centrica full-time

      Pros

      Good salary and benefits package. Generous pension matching contributions after 2 years.

      Cons

      Mysteriously opaque management layers of incompetence and laziness. All communication is downwards. Uncontrolled political culture of patronage, favouritism and bullying. Basic HR competence is completely missing - e.g. new hires can go months before they are paid. No-one takes responsibility for anything.

      Advice to Management

      Stop encouraging and rewarding incompetence. Start walking about and having conversations with people rather than hiding behind video clips and talking at everyone.
