Pros

Culture was really good and really conducive to your own personal development. In addition, the scope of opportunities that BT can provide were great due to their international reach.

Cons

There are no specific cons, but the working hours can get long, however this is true for any employer in particular any FTSE 100 firm.

    I worked at BT full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security, work life balance, very easy business to stay in if you are not motivated to change. Lots of opportunity to try different jobs in such a big company.

    Cons

    Very bad base pay, they constantly change sales targets during the year which makes it impossible to motivate sales people - e.g. achieve your annual target early in the year to be told that your target is going to be increased. Lack of accelerators (extra commission) to motivate you to over achieve on your targets. Extremely poor sales management through out the business.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your sales management and motivation for account managers. Stop moving the goal posts and you might get people to stay around longer.

    Not all middle management are as talented as their job titles make them feel
    A few low-performance, long-standing, staff trying to look after themselves rather than BT
    Internal good practice is not always external good practice
    Under-pressure middle management with self-serving behaviours
