Centrica is a relatively good place to work. Unfortunately, Centrica HQ is in the UK and the business model is VERY different in UK vs USA. These differences are detrimental to the success of the US organization.During my time with the company 2016 to 2022, there was a lot of change an turmoil. Buying companies, selling companies, changing management and changing strategies. I bit naive about some of the business they chose to pursue.The compensation was ok. They have a high deductable medical insurance program that was pricey. Dental and vision coverage was marginal. Had a 401k match (5 employee and 2.5 or 3 percent match).Enjoyed the people I worked with and would go back of the opportunity arose.

Great company to work for, WLB is top of the agenda for all senior leaders. The company takes care of its employees. Benefits are good, pay isn’t great.

Currently firing many employees to reemploy new employees on a ruthless contract. You wont have any work life balance. The management are appalling. Centrica is a failing company
