    Good place to work if you want a career but unfortunately lots of places to hide if you are a low performer

    I have been working at BT

    Pros

    No redundancy - if you work hard then you will be rewarded. Large organisation which is only looking to resource within its own people resources. Pension and benefits even if you are new are fantatic. In many cases the salary beats the averages in the UK. Very flexible for any personal issues such as caring for relatives etc.

    Cons

    Lots of people who think job for life means that they can coast in thier role and that no one has the right to challenge this....too many layers and not enough people able to make decisions. Very silo'd in their approaches and not enough people seeing BT as one organisation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the performance issues. Give more attonomy to the Line Managers

    Pros

    Very broad range of businesses, so lots of opportunities for sideway moves. A very well established brand and organisation in the UK, with a real social conscience and a serious approach to CSR and green issues. Great pension (for the moment), great holidays, great bonus. Very high visibility in the consciousness of the British public, particularly the over 50's, so a great way to understand that market place.
    Historically, there had been some real attempt at international growth which provided a good platform for personal learning of other business cultures. The UK business is the backbone of modern society in helping internet traffic in the UK

    Cons

    A political organisation that is just starting to visibly link poor performance with consequences. Performance management is not adequate and there are layers of management which are really not needed. There is also a habit of recruiting new skills externally (for example to develop the mobile or TV offerings in the UK consumer market) when in fact those skills may well exist internally, but knowledge management is poor in many parts of the organisation. The business is so broad it can lack focus - when in doubt, it knee-jerks towards high profit types activities starving of investment the parts that should guarantee its future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be tough on the cost base
