Pros

Good working conditions, good work life balance. Many great people. Experience at one of the biggest ISPs.

Cons

Not much perspective to progress. Very limited access to information or flexibility to let you discover anything beyond your own desk. Lots of force fed meaningless esoteric management theories . Hideous political intricacies at mid-management level.

Advice to Management

More power and involvement to the people at lower levels. Simplify processes and align information flows with processes.

    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.

    inwardly focused and poorly directed in ever decreasing circles

    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.
