    Pros

    Family friendly. Some very good people [who sometimes don't hang around]. Decent work life balance. Industry-matching remuneration. Job movement is easier to new roles via a transition process. More global than competitors.

    Cons

    Still operates in its divisional silos. Senior management too accountant-heavy meaning the focus is on costs and not revenue. A fair number of middle managers managing upwards. Pockets of intense work can sit right next to under-performing teams. A lot of wasted energy on pet projects that don't eventuate. Overall package [ex remuneration] is not overly attractive.

    Advice to Management

    Define the path the growth and follow it - even if it means we have to take more risks. Shorter planning horizons are a norm but don't sacrifice the longer term strategy.

  2. Friendly company with lots of opportunities

    Pros

    The culture is very friendly with focus on work life balance, working from home or flexi time is very common unless you are in operations role
    The company is very diverse in terms of job roles and projects
    Communication from senior management is often frequent and through many channels

    Cons

    Although generally good people, tends to be issues around professionalism and people not at the too of the skill set
    There is a bit of a union mindset and majority of employees have worked at BT for 20+ years so there is a certain amount of tribalism in company

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of focus around quality of delivery which is great, but we often have head count challenges that make hitting these standards difficult
