Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook

I have been working at BT full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible working - working from home possible sometimes depending on line management
Central location in town
Some parking
Canteen

Cons

CYA mentality rewards the political
Constant non-transparent drip-feed of redundancies - people disappear
NI staff have total security, RoI staff have none.
Financial results totally dependent on headcount cuts in RoI
Constant re-organisations couched as streamlining of processes followed by job cuts
Huge pressure to sell
Little work-life balance

Advice to Management

Introduce honest communication and transparency

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BT part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are really friendly, relaxed atmosphere, flexible working possible, central London location. Interesting time to work for the company, as it continues it's post privatisation transition and branches out into new ventures e.g. TV.

    Cons

    Company has been cutting perks, though you could argue it is becoming more efficient... I found my line manager could have been a bit better at communicating and giving me feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps improve the training and feedback a little
