    I worked at Cable & Wireless Worldwide as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very professional looking. Co-workers seem to have a good personality and work well together. Very clean environment, almost sterile. Open floor plan to encourage a collaborative work style.

    Cons

    To corporate structured. More appearance oriented than actual work done. Too much money spent on the company appearance and no money spent on actual technology. Decisions seem to be centered around promoting the company instead of what they are selling. I didn't know who our clients truly were until my last week there when I met a customer of the company. The customer mentioned the nickname of the company was "Cable & Worthless".

    Advice to Management

    You hired professionals, so let the professionals do their work and limit the micro-management. Focus on technology and deliverables instead of company appearance. Company appearance with improve with the improvement of the technology in customer's hands.


  3. My experience at Cable & wireless has been rewarding, the knowledge and experience gained is priceless.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Cable & Wireless Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to new and emerging technologies. Vendor specific training

    Cons

    Too much is expected from individuals, it's a do more with less culture. Therefore quality of work output is not up to standard.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training. Proper definition of roles needed as current roles are too cross functional not allowing staff to perform at their maximum potential.

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours. - Work at home 2x days per week. - Collaborative working environment - Very "global" way of working - Competitive pay - Small size encourages entrepeneurial spirit

    Cons

    - USA is very small in size, so limited advancement opportunities - UK based organization makes it hard to feel "connected" to home office - Limited global product set - makes selling in to US accounts difficult

    Advice to Management

    For a truely global presence, product management needs to focus on creating products and services that exist across all geographies.
