    I worked at Centrica full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexibility if you work in the US your manager and for sure leadership will be in the UK. Unlimited vacation.

    Cons

    UK leadership is horrible. There is a lack of trust between the UK and US teams. They have removed all the strategic roles in North America. They used to have some really dynamic leadership on Houston they are all gone now. All the people I know that are staying are doing so for cushy job people don't go into the office anymore and are working part time for full time salary. They don't really care anymore. It... really is a shame Direct Energy was a great place five years ago doing great things and the results. All the good people have left or will leave and you will be stuck with people who don't want to work. Changing the bonus structure for 2019 anyone good left or will leave in 2020 when they get their bonus it won't be what they have been used too. Centrica doesn't seem to have a strategy other than cut costs and layoffs. Just not a good place to be.....
