    I have been working at BT full-time

    Pros

    Some telecommuting with tools provided to encourage being mobile. Good people

    Cons

    Company culture readily acknowledged by employees is that the company processes in place do not work and it is a constant battle to accomplish anything.

    Advice to Management

    Take overship of solving problems rather than just saying "it's the BT way"

    I have been working at BT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The health benefits are superb. Pay rate, for me, is decent.

    Cons

    While my pay rate is pretty decent, there are others within the company that make far less than me and do far more work. Management seems out of touch and really out to put out fires, rather than prevent them from occurring in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive and don't throw your people under the bus. If something is wrong, it is on you to train and fix. Forward thinking and proactive measures to prevent fires would help the employee and the customer

    I worked at BT full-time

    Pros

    Great vacation, decent healthcare, 401k matching, average salaries, raises and bonuses, UK based and widespread international footprint.

    Cons

    Most business support is in the UK or Dallas TX. Bonuses fluctuate. Company is UK based, so most internal investment is UK focused.

    I have been working at BT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good communication from Sr. Maagement
    Great opportunities to learn new skills, cultures, etc.
    Travel opportunities if you want that.
    Excellent work/life balance. When not on the road, I work from home.
    Great conferencing/collaboration tools (Dolby Audio conferencing for example)

    Cons

    Salary is less than financial services. BT is fundamentally a Telecom company and they just don't pay as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more visible commitment to the US-based business.
