    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work for colleagues, innovation, opportunities, benefits, etc, etc

    Cons

    Previous CEO, Ben Verwaayen , brought in ignorant Stalinist (yes Stalinist) style bullies. They use performance management to undermine, demoralise and ultimately destroy people, even the recently recruited and talented - beware! The idea seems to be to get rid of every existing employee, however competent, and replace them with fewer less experienced ones.

    Advice to Management

    To survive BT needs to sack the bullies and most of HR, get back to proper decent common sense management of people and commercially to get away from accountant/cash focused management and back to innovation and investment in what must, or at least should be, the most exciting market.
