I worked at BT part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

People are really friendly, relaxed atmosphere, flexible working possible, central London location. Interesting time to work for the company, as it continues it's post privatisation transition and branches out into new ventures e.g. TV.

Cons

Company has been cutting perks, though you could argue it is becoming more efficient... I found my line manager could have been a bit better at communicating and giving me feedback.

Advice to Management

Perhaps improve the training and feedback a little

    I worked at BT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a relatively stable company and you are very unlikely to get laid off. The benefits are not bad although the salaries aren't the greatest. Work-life balance varies hugely depending on which part of the company you work in. It's a unionised company so joining has significant benefits.

    Cons

    The pay is not that competitive in some positions and it's not clear how pay decisions are made. BT is extremely bureaucratic and decisions can take a long time. If a customer needs anything non-standard it's a real struggle to get things done. Again there is huge variety in the way different parts of the company work so there is probably something for everyone in BT, your experience will depend hugely on where you end up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fiddling unless you know exactly what the impact of changes will be. Change for the sake of change is too often harmful.


  2. Good company, good workers but bad environment
