I have been working at BT Ireland

Pros

Good Work life balance

Varied workload as BT has huge portfolio. Staff young & friendly. Central location
Lots of helpful people around the services.

Cons

Merger with BT Retail has been a disaster for BT in South, Cultural differences hugh between regions. All senior managers now based in North and all job losses are happening in South as there is No union.
Cost saving has gone ridicolous, office furmiture now being reconditioned.
Morale is lowest I have ever seen in a corporate setting.
Professional services model flawed. Middle management very poor, no vision, strategy or technical background
Lack of visibility of bigger BT, since de-merger from GS>

Focus on key accounts is to the detriment of any new business.
Key Sales staff left and replaced by poor qaulity people.
further Job losses on cards

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resign..

Employ new Sales with background in IT or Telecomms industry. Focus on generating new business. Employ more managers from South.
