    Pros

    Good diversity of assignments, when they are successful in selling something.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition or is it negative recognition? Consultants have not seen any increases for over 5 years plus and for the fortunate ones this year, if someone didn't tell us, the increase would be lost in rounding.

    Advice to Management

    People are your most valuable asset. Recognize this and the business will benefit.

    Pros

    great benefits, great co-workers, nice facilities, decent pay, much flexibility. company car, perks, gift cards, rather close to the neighborhood, fiendly atmosphere, company picnics

    Cons

    no room for advancement, poor management decision making, no employee communication. team leaders know very little and sometimes a lot less than employees under them,

    Advice to Management

    treat employees fairly if you want them to stay in the company. also give more perks to employees for them not to leave for better comapnies

    Pros

    As a means to retire. The money starts OKish and stays OKish as you progress your "career" here.

    Cons

    Most of the company has its head in the sand, only mediocrity is rewarded. Everything about BT is fake, everything is all talk and no walk. Performance reviews don't dwell on what you have done, but on generic corporate values. Most people in the company at all levels replace real comments and speeches with a sea of trendy buzzwords. You will never hear about "something important to discuss", you will only hear about "a key enabler moving forwards".

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like a dinosaur, show some respect to your employees and customers. Stop caring only about your bonuses and do what is right.

    Pros

    The company does not have quality work in India and completely pathetic management.

    Cons

    No work-life balance **
    Stupid Management.
    Not a good place for Women employees as there is no concern for women employees even if they are pregnant.
    You need to work on Weekend which is compulsory here and this will not be informed before they offer you the job.
    Sometimes you need to work on Holidays as well without providing Comp-off.
    People who doesn't have leadership skills are working as Manager here.
    Do Join ,If you want to destroy your career.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as human ,not like a slave.

    Pros

    Used to be a good caring company but went down hill about 15 years ago. Reasonable salary and benefits once established in middle management and above but you will work for it.

    Cons

    I tried to be fair when writing this originally and giving 2 stars. Having read other reveiews I realise I was being generous. The current atmosphere is toxic and designed to keep employees in fear of their jobs while HR looks to cull the herd. There are long hours, duplicitous seniors, a high pressure environment with lack of thanks, enforced culture of looking after yourself and your position since performance management enforces survival of the fittest in your team

    Advice to Management

    take ownership of mess and stop blaming employees, eventually the bad management will catch up with BT but those responsible will have left by then
