Pros

Company has a great mission, cutting edge portfolio of services. Really has the potential to rocket> The leadership team is smart and savy and they truly have a great customer base and great front line employees.

Cons

Haven't invested enough in frontline support to make sure that we are offering quality of service, Haven't offered raises in 3 years. Each division works as it's own separate entitiy duplicating efforts or worse sabotaging efforts of other sales team. Even though GLT is great, Middle Management is not. There is too much politics and not enough action.

Advice to Management

Focus on combining teams and groups to really understand the economy of scale and services that could be delivered. As a company BT is bleeding money as they are trying to compensate too many sales team. sales leaders etc on small deals

    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
