    Good employer apart from pay and performance (mis-)management processes.

    I have been working at BT

    Pros

    The pension is good if you got in on the final salary scheme and BT don't ditch it. Holiday entitlement is good. Support for professional development & training is very good. Being a large company provides plenty of opportunity to move between different projects and even different work areas. Good culture & supportive colleagues.

    Cons

    Inept, ineffective & frankly de-motivating performance management system. Pay is relatively low; this is causing recruitment issues whereby the only way to get new staff in my area is to pay top of the pay range when more experienced staff are on substantially less. BT recognise the pay system has problems but consistently refuses to do anything about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good strategy, but fix the pay scales before staff get even more de-motivated!

    I have been working at BT

    Pros

    Flexibility with work life balance

    Cons

    Low pay, low prospects of career advancement, lack of transparency on personnel matters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not believe that senior management cares about feedback. They have not taken feedback into account for the time I have working for BT.
