Most profitable area was ran into ground by the incompetent management. Don't let the sale of Canadian assets to canlin fool you, it's still the same terrible managers working there, that gas field is doomed until management changes. Just a different name on the sign now. Worst company I have ever worked for in my entire adult life.
Pros
Literally none
Cons
Managers. Pay. Childish way of managing

I enjoyed working at Centrica Energy. I was able to apply my creative style to improve many processes during the Suncor acquisition. This was the most enjoyable part of the job. The workplace structure of an open concept was challenging to concentrate. I adapted and continued to perform very well.
Pros
Freedom to Create
Cons
Systems needed to be adapted to the new business.

My typical day involves flying via helicopter to a remote gas platform to conduct planned and preventative maintenance I manage a team of multi disciplined Technicians during a 12hr day I work well with my team and we have a strong bond which helps create a great work ethic The hardest part of my job is working 14 days continual sometimes stretching to 14hrs My most enjoyable part of the job is working with a great team and keeping the Gas flowing from the platforms.
Pros
Pension and SIP share scheme
Cons
Working away from home for 14 Days

Decent work, but not much of an environment. The culture was poor and the working conditions were also very poor. No privacy in the minimalist open cubicle and glass wall environment. There are definitely better places to work.
Pros
Decent pay.
Cons
Poor working conditions.

i really enjoyed my job on a day to day basis. from the beautiful landscapes that i had the pleasure of working in, too the cooperation and guidance of fellow co workers. i learned a lot about the transportation of natural gas and oil through pipelines and facilities. i would say the hardest part of my job was working in highly dangerous atmospheres with h2s gases. i try to learn as much as i can in any surrounding. the only thing someone can never steal from you is your knowledge. in which in this state of employment i reached my limit of learning and advancement, which is the reasoning for my search for something new and exciting.
Pros
great schedule. benefits. landscape
Cons
dangerous gases. no room for expanding

Everything is great about the company minus the control that Centrica UK had over operations and ultimately caused lay offs due to decisions despite Canada being cash flow positive

There is a myriad of talent at Centrica that enjoys collaboration and keep things simple to get the job done. Most of the noxious personnel inherited during takeover from Suncor is gone, and the remaining people is good to work with. Good work life balance.
Pros
Most of the people is nice to work with
Cons
Centrica Canada will sell all its assets; conditions may change with new management.

Over the last 2 years multiple employees including two long term VP's have left this organization. Turn over is high and there are questions as to why they are not paying their vendors on time. Do yourself a favour and investigate fully before taking any position within this organization. The Canadian company makes all of the money for the organization but was recently partially sold to Qatar. Most people I know are looking for positions elsewhere right now.
Pros
We receive flex days each month
Cons
