    I worked at BT full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    BT offers a myriad of opportunities to grow, is a diverse and inclusive organisation and is a rewarding company to work for. BT offers a myriad of rewarding opportunities - the people are great, company is ambitious, challenging, diverse, inclusive and has a duty of care for its employees.

    Cons

    It's a big company, 100k+ employees - if you prefer smaller companies it's not the one for you.

    Full of extremely intelligent people. Excellent place to learn and develop

    Cons

    As with most large companies, the diseconomies of scale is a huge problem here. it can be death by red tape sometimes

    Advice to Management

    work on making life simple for employees as well as customers. Employees want to make things easy for customers, but legacy issues consistently prevent them from doing this

    Poorly led. Bullying culture - senior managers rewarded with further promotion even when their behaviours were widely known. Constantly looking over your shoulder. Blame culture. Not very diverse at the senior level - male dominated.

    Cons

    Bullying Lack of decision making No ownership or accountability of work High levels of internal politics

    Advice to Management

    Something needs to change at BT. It is the worst place I have ever worked. There is a culture of bullying and workwise total lack of decision making and accountability, working in isolation, false reporting. Everyday is infuriating working at this place.

    I have been working at BT full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Nice people, not bad money, some interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    Insane processes that feel like they’ve been designed to stop you being able to do your job. Some people in very senior roles who are clueless to the outside world having spent their entire life at BT. Old fashioned head office, with awful technology. Hilariously phones rarely work in meeting rooms. Toilets are like nothing I’ve seen - gross. Very hierarchical, even in manager roles you will treated like a child.

    Advice to Management

    Stop analysing employee review data and just make some positive changes! Or it may be easier to just knock it all down and start again.
