Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good working conditions, good work life balance. Many great people. Experience at one of the biggest ISPs.

    Cons

    Not much perspective to progress. Very limited access to information or flexibility to let you discover anything beyond your own desk. Lots of force fed meaningless esoteric management theories . Hideous political intricacies at mid-management level.

    Advice to Management

    More power and involvement to the people at lower levels. Simplify processes and align information flows with processes.
