    I have been working at BT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Professional culture and stable well-defined jobscopes.
    Structured and process driven.
    Good office environment / location, and adequate best-practice benefits.

    Cons

    Slow, complex, bureucratic supporting processes that impede business growth and personal development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the way we work, or lose good people whom care most for the business.
    Leave the decisions to the business and hold them responsible, rather than micromanage to a state of unacceptable delay.

    Pros

    The people are BT's biggest asset.

    Extremely bureaucratic. Way too much red tape.
    Dogmatic in employee appraisals... not so much meritocratic but "does it fit the bell curve"

    I have been working at BT

    Pros

    Global company with lots of opporunities to grow in different roles.

    Cons

    No Payrise, No Bonusses, HR is always trying to get the best for the least, management focuss on short term results only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not only look at short term results but also at long term. Do use the knowledge and skills of your people and do not let the good ones leave just because you ant to save cost.
