I worked at BT full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

good benefits and work/life balance

Cons

the quicker you finish your project, the sooner you will be replaced by foreign contractors and you will be removed from your team or even from the company.

BT seems to me not a place where engineers are treated as family members but tools. avoid this company if you have other choices

Advice to ManagementAdvice

treat engineers like human beings

    Pros

    The company is struggling in the US market. Their focus is network and manged services. Generous vacation policy, In line with Europe in terms of vacation allowance. fixed line services in the UK performance consistency give BT a lot of financial flexibility to enter and grow market precense. Big focus in APAC region.

    Cons

    significant cost cutting. poor emphasis on customer services. low employee moral. US and Canada is stuggling. losing lots of talent.

    I have been working at BT

    Pros

    Great place to work, IF you're in the right department...under the right management...and not looking for career growth.

    Cons

    Horrible place to work if you are in the wrong department...no matter what management you fall under. I saw BT let most of it's talented employees walk out the door just so bonuses and annual numbers could be met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. Be more selective of senior management candidates. Numbers are important but they don't run a business, the employee's do.
