    I worked at BT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the schedule, the actual job, the trainer by the name of Sam was hilarious

    Cons

    They sat me clear across the building from the entire team I was supposed to be on for the first 3 months and they had no clue who my manager was. As I worked the early shift I was the ONLY person on that side of the building during my time for the first few hours every day. There was no one to reach out to for help. The place was a literal hot mess. The hiring manager who interviewed me was very kind during interviewing but was very untrustworthy in the end.

    Too much gossip from management about their teams- so much that you could over hear personal info or situations being discussed.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. They closed the site.

    Pros

    Very professional environment with great benefits

    Cons

    A lot of red tape. Myself and thirty people were hired and then laid off within 2 months because they never had approval from across the pond. Good news is they were very nice about it and sent us all home in limousines

    I worked at BT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people who if you’re one of the lucky ones will take it upon themselves to mentor you. Relatively easy to find support informally.

    Cons

    People were getting laid off monthly for years. Never quite got it turned around. Morale.

    Other things:
    Systems. Project management. Customer service. You name it. You will be operating with no support as will your customers..

    Questionable if bt is invested in Global services/business division.

    No l&d and no intent to fix it.

    Advice to Management

    What you did 5 years ago impacts today. This one is going to take a while to turn around.

    Need to pay people according to industry median standards. Stop offshoring to India
