Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

some potential still to move around the business for personal development. Very knowledgeable colleagues who tend to support one another very well.

Cons

bullying and pressure to achieve managed exit targets seen as most important part of leadership roles. Salaries not competitive. The bureaucracy to get things done is draining despite constant comms around making things simpler.

Advice to Management

You are creating an oppressive and stifling place to work. Stop the bullying and trust your managers and people to do the right things.

    I worked at BT as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cons

    Bad employee management, fragmented teams, extremely bureaucratic, no sense of direction from managers, managers unavailable for learning opps, company closed for initiative - no initiative is encouraged., takes to have technology fixed (strange, since they are a telecom company)!

    Pros

    Great work experience because of the current bad state of business

    Cons

    Hierarchical and no clear career progression path

    Advice to Management

    Think hard to retain talent and find ways to improve where it is required as opposed to cutting cost across the board.
