Former Employee - Business Development Intern in London, England (UK)

I worked at BT as an intern for less than a 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)!

    I worked at BT part-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps improve the training and feedback a little
