    Pros

    Pay is OK, but not the Best
    Lots of Training Opportunities
    Smart Talanted People
    Work from Home. Excellent work life balance

    Cons

    Pay is below rest of industry
    Marketing is lacking in US
    Poor integration of teaming

    Advice to Management

    Agreen on: "Need to revamp pay structure or they will continue losing top talent to competitors"

    Pros

    There was a lot of collaboration, mentorship, and support from peers and coworkers.

    Cons

    There wasn't any employee tuition reimbursement program or even any support for employees wishing to pursue an advanced career. That's why I left them. Vacation time was also 2-3 weeks only

    Advice to Management

    Offer support to people who wish to pursue advanced careers. That could mean, assign them to local projects that don't require flying. Work out deals with consultants to retain them.

    Pros

    Before the company was taken over, Infonet was a company where everyone worked closely together, and coworkers almost felt like family (in the good sense of the word). Energetic, and flexible, things were created and people made it work. After the merger with BT, things became more organized, official, structured and additional services became available (more opportunities to sell).

    Cons

    After the merger, decision making processes seemed to be slower, more people had to be involved, things seem to take longer to be resolved. However, I believe that this was also due to the fact that the organisations still had to fully merge services and retrain people on the new processes (while also still using the old processes).

    Pros

    Great place to work, IF you're in the right department...under the right management...and not looking for career growth.

    Cons

    Horrible place to work if you are in the wrong department...no matter what management you fall under. I saw BT let most of it's talented employees walk out the door just so bonuses and annual numbers could be met.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Be more selective of senior management candidates. Numbers are important but they don't run a business, the employee's do.

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

    Pros

    Great place and great leadership. Very understanding bosses and laid back style.

    Cons

    Need to involve senior engineers in the vision and roadmap planning a bit more.

    Advice to Management

    Take more care into developing the budding leaders in the company instead of just bringing in people with big titles from the mothership.

    Pros

    A great company to work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company is located in the UK, thus, there is not much room for growth in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feed back of your employees.

    Pros

    Collaboration is very highly valued.

    Cons

    Internal systems complex. A lot of problems in the distribution new laptops and smart cards. Some people have had a new computer for 5 months and it is still in the box because the smart card did not work and UK ordering systems cannot locate some locations in the USA.

    Pros

    For a large company regulated company, they get how to do business. They treat their employees with respect and compensate them above the market rate.

    Cons

    They are limited in network product offerings as North America is not built out at this time.

    Advice to Management

    They do not have the sales resources to bring in the many opportunities in certain areas of the country.
