No opinion of CEO

I worked at BT as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good structured career progression for graduates on the graduate scheme. Some interesting work if you are in the right areas. Good friendly environment and nice campus at Adastral park.

Cons

I got the impression that some of the technical research areas are not valued so much by the company. In the area I worked in funding seemed low and some basics were not provided which employees had been asking for for a long time.

    I have been working at BT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    New offices. Nothing else really

    Cons

    New offices in Sandwell have hade many cars stolen from the local car parks, people being mugged for their laptops... Not a nice area at all Senior management appear intent on outsourcing all roles to India, improving margins and retaining their bonuses with no concern for staff morale or customer satisfaction. Zero comms from line management. Losing customers rapidly. No written job description means zero promotional prospects.

    Advice to Management

    Outsourcing everything to India is not the answer to every problem, communicate with the staff, hold team meetings and actually ask what's wrong.

    I have been working at BT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good at downsizing whilst maintaining shareholder value. Some good people to work with. Some divisions are better than others so choose carefully.

    Cons

    Very poor management with a lack of vision. Took a lot of rejects from CWC and the BT Business Division is suffering the very same fate as a result. Very little customer focus and even less innovation. Very little support for personal development.

    Advice to Management

    No point, everyone is too wrapped up in their own fear to listen to anyone other than their line manager.
