    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Calor Gas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good individuals and a generally pleasant environment to work in. No pressure when it comes to leaving the office on time. On rare occasions you are required to stay late or pick up a phone call after hours.

    Cons

    Some of the managers can be difficult to deal with. Team work is appreciated but not everyone plays by the rules. An over abundance of rules and layers of management in certain departments are actually impeding smoother and faster progress. Some people are particularly negative and have a knock on effect on general morale.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and act on issues, listen to the suggestions coming from the base, institute a completely anonymous feedback process that people can use to voice their opinions without feeling at risk. Most people would have the company's good in mind when reporting issues.
