I have been working at Centrica full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great opportunities for career development (up to a certain level)

Cons

Poor systems which can be intolerably slow and outdated
Weak decision making with little business planning
Lack of straight talk and honesty from the leaders
Cumbersome and top heavy management
Too much time is spent reporting/spinning a story rather than actioning a plan.

Advice to Management

Simplify the structure and speak honestly with employees. Develop a strategy that gives customers what they want...
