    Cons

    Long hours

    Culture of micromanagement

    Not a "Great Place to Work"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending you're joining 2 teams together to benefit the customer - we know it's to meet a headcount target - The secret lay-off's every qtr are causing a poor culture. Cut once and finish.

    I have been working at BT Ireland

    Pros

    Competitive salary.
    Large corporate clients.
    Global network.

    Cons

    Sales and Finance people are trying to run a Telco where engineers are not appreciated and treated very poorly.
    Demotivating, depressing work environment.
    Small, dirty offices with very little desk space and no air-conditioning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BT used to treat engineers fairly in the UK, why not do the same in Ireland?
