Pros

Big company with a lot of change.
Great if you are based in London area.

Cons

Real disconnect between high level strategy & implementation on ground.
Performance management is a real hot topic and is generally applied inconsistently around the business with little regard to objectives.
Little in way of career management other than what you make for yourself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more back to floor visits & actually listen/act.

    I have been working at BT full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    some potential still to move around the business for personal development. Very knowledgeable colleagues who tend to support one another very well.

    Cons

    bullying and pressure to achieve managed exit targets seen as most important part of leadership roles. Salaries not competitive. The bureaucracy to get things done is draining despite constant comms around making things simpler.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are creating an oppressive and stifling place to work. Stop the bullying and trust your managers and people to do the right things.

    I worked at BT as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good lifestyle, decent work times, great city, brand name, experience working in a large company

    Cons

    Bad employee management, fragmented teams, extremely bureaucratic, no sense of direction from managers, managers unavailable for learning opps, company closed for initiative - no initiative is encouraged., takes to have technology fixed (strange, since they are a telecom company)!
