Pros

Dynamic technology company - not the dull company that still persists in the minds of some people in the UK

An exciting place to work
Some great colleagues and a good laugh alongside extremely hard work

It is a very competitive environment - you are only as good as your last success

    Pros

    The sense of community- everyone helping each other, keeping each other informed, this extends to both staff members and managment.

    Cons

    Long, inflexible hours.
    The way that managment sometimes get involved in office gossip (This has occured on many occasion dince the start of my employment)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the hours that your staff work more critically- they are inflexible and do not account for employees having a personal life!
    Stop getting involved in office gossip...if I can rise above it so can you!

    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!
