Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

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

    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 Management

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


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

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Given opportunities to stretch yourself, operate at significant scale.

    Cons

    Problems inherent in very large organisations - communication and bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

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