    I worked at BT as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The fellow engineers are great. The software has an extremely solid foundation and is a pleasure to work on. Best work/life balance of any company I've ever worked for.

    Cons

    Management isn't solid. Technology is old in some areas, EX OC4J was still being used as an application server.

    Former Employee - Project Manager

    I worked at BT full-time (more than an year)

    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.
