    Pros

    Flexible and internal promotional opps
    Great home working opps
    Most people who work for BT are fantastic - its just a shame about the small population dragging us down

    Cons

    It's true that part of the work force is overpaid, underworked and thinks that BT owes them a living. They have no intention of going anywhere unless a large amount of money is paid - which it is on many occasions.
    Connect doesn't help - rather than working Managers to deal with poor performance they are more interesting in moaning and deliberately making managing poor performance difficult - don't they understand that this will just mean more job loses?

    Advice to Management

    Cut 20% of the workforce - no one would notice!


  2. "Good employer apart from pay and performance (mis-)management processes."

    Pros

    The pension is good if you got in on the final salary scheme and BT don't ditch it. Holiday entitlement is good. Support for professional development & training is very good. Being a large company provides plenty of opportunity to move between different projects and even different work areas. Good culture & supportive colleagues.

    Cons

    Inept, ineffective & frankly de-motivating performance management system. Pay is relatively low; this is causing recruitment issues whereby the only way to get new staff in my area is to pay top of the pay range when more experienced staff are on substantially less. BT recognise the pay system has problems but consistently refuses to do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Good strategy, but fix the pay scales before staff get even more de-motivated!
