Current Employee - General Manager in London, England (UK)

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)!

    Challenging and interesting roles do exist, but cultural problems associated with size

    I worked at BT full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Given opportunities to stretch yourself, operate at significant scale.

    Cons

    Problems inherent in very large organisations - communication and bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rapid pace of different initiatives can lead to a lack of engagement with staff.
