I have been working at BT full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good people, who tend to band together and everyone is in the same boat.

Cons

Cross area working needs to be improved upon and too much red tape to get through for often the simplest of things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on giving your people a better work life balance, training and opportunities to move up the ladder. While bottom line is definitely important, it cannot be the be all and end all.

    Simplify the way we work, or lose good people whom care most for the business.

    I worked at BT full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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