Pros

I learned a lot a BT. It was a good starting point in a career in IT. Everyone was also very easy to get a long with.

Cons

After some time working there they figured you've worked there long enough to know everything so from then on there was no help with any new projects that came up. They also gave people no time off because there was no one that could cover their time, so people would be mad at each other. Work was also non-stop from the second I walked into the door to about 30 mins after when I was supposed to have already left.

Advice to Management

Go to upper management to tell them that people are very unhappy. Tell them that people are burnt out from dealing with a million things all at once.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible work environment with viirtual workforce. You can work from home and not be tied down to an 8-5 in an office

    Cons

    The level of excellence is not there. I would estimate that 50% of professionals have college degrees while the other half feel like a degree is worthless and their MS or Cisco certificaitons somewho equalize the playing field. Promotions are hokey at best when you work with non-degreed people with titles of Senior Principal and yet have never completed economics 101. You want professional...go to Accenture, Booz, etc

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to move on...many of you are riding the wave on grabbing bonuses off the backs of others and you really do not have a grasp of what is really going on

    Pros

    BT Global Services is a very global company with many opportunities to travel and work abroad if you are single and looking for this kind of lifestyle.

    Cons

    No published or monitored career progression. No performance reviews from the people you actually work for. Just like consulting. Conference calls around the clock

    Advice to Management

    Implement career progression tracks. Hold people accountable for the quality of their work. Ensure that top performers are rewarded sufficiently.
