    Pros

    For a large company regulated company, they get how to do business. They treat their employees with respect and compensate them above the market rate.

    Cons

    They are limited in network product offerings as North America is not built out at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They do not have the sales resources to bring in the many opportunities in certain areas of the country.

    Pros

    Collaboration is very highly valued.

    Cons

    Internal systems complex. A lot of problems in the distribution new laptops and smart cards. Some people have had a new computer for 5 months and it is still in the box because the smart card did not work and UK ordering systems cannot locate some locations in the USA.

    A great company to work.

    I have been working at BT

    Pros

    Great place to work, IF you're in the right department...under the right management...and not looking for career growth.

    Cons

    Horrible place to work if you are in the wrong department...no matter what management you fall under. I saw BT let most of it's talented employees walk out the door just so bonuses and annual numbers could be met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. Be more selective of senior management candidates. Numbers are important but they don't run a business, the employee's do.
