No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good structured career progression for graduates on the graduate scheme. Some interesting work if you are in the right areas. Good friendly environment and nice campus at Adastral park.

Cons

I got the impression that some of the technical research areas are not valued so much by the company. In the area I worked in funding seemed low and some basics were not provided which employees had been asking for for a long time.

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

    Pros

    Home working policy allows flexibility
    Young scientist - just a great event
    Revamped buildings - long overdue but now done.
    Central d4 location

    Cons

    Spineless line managers
    Everything is about the numbers
    Customer service is all but gone
    Culture of managing good people out to avoid redundancy

    Advice to Management

    Stop the incessant polling. You know the people are unhappy. You know what to do to fix it. Just do it, or stop pretending you care. Why not promote some good people instead of the political idiots. You won't get the results you need from these clowns.

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

    Pros

    Good at downsizing whilst maintaining shareholder value. Some good people to work with. Some divisions are better than others so choose carefully.

    Cons

    Very poor management with a lack of vision. Took a lot of rejects from CWC and the BT Business Division is suffering the very same fate as a result. Very little customer focus and even less innovation. Very little support for personal development.

    Advice to Management

    No point, everyone is too wrapped up in their own fear to listen to anyone other than their line manager.
