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

Pros

Diverse company with many different kinds of projects and customers.

Cons

Lack of A grade people that make a winning team, continually failing against modern, more nimble competitors due to bad ideas and poor execution.

Advice to Management

Bring new blood in and give them the authority to do things differently, accepting that you need to think and act like a technology company to compete and win in the modern world.

    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.
