Pros

Excellent benefits and compensation. Generally competent peers within my department. Exposure to global experience in my field of interest. Closeness to home and airport for business travel.

Cons

Leadership at various levels (it gets worse as leadership level elevates) lead from a place of fear, lack of information, self-preservation and situationally determined professional morals and ethics. Communication and collaboration between related groups and within groups are fractured at best. It appears that for eh lest couple of years the decision has been made to transform at least in the US to become a mini-EDS as many key positions have been and continue to be filled by its former employees. ironically, while BT espouses specific work values of integrity, collaboration and customer-focus, the culture of EDS and those BT has hired from EDS generally behave in the opposite or close to opposite manner. It's hypocritical and has contributed to the creation of a toxic work environment.

Advice to Management

Realize most of you who are in leadership positions are not respected and supported by the majority of employees in your teams. Self-reflect on why , take accountability and focus on transforming yourself because transformation is warranted.

    Pros

    Decentralized organization/management - If you've got a good manager, life can be great.

    Cons

    Decentralized organization/management; BT is still very "British", if you are at one of the remote offices (which are almost everywhere) some of the centralized, corporate pronouncements don't apply to you. That leads you to wonder which mandatory things are really mandatory and which ones aren't.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice at this point, I'm to new at the company.
