    Pros

    Excellent company with great benefits linked to the music and data sides of the business. Very old technologies used in parts of IT so not great for technical career growth but you'd have to be a fool not to develop excellent general skills in business side of IT. Most contracts since have proved O2 is very professional with its head screwed on.

    Cons

    Terrible management of offshore contractors leaves gaping holes in applications that are probably put there as deliberate money spinners for the developers off shore. Offshore guys confided that brown paper bags change hands regularly to allow money spinners into production.
