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

Pros

There seems to be a genuine culture of taking care of employee's wellbeing.

Cons

There is a definite culture of risk aversion. Most people have been around for a long time which can slow down the pace of advancement, and there is less appetite for change.

Advice to Management

Entrepreneurship-like abilities should be praised more heavily to keep abreast of technological changes in a shifting industry.
