Current Employee - Network Engineer in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Competitive salary.
Large corporate clients.
Global network.

Cons

Sales and Finance people are trying to run a Telco where engineers are not appreciated and treated very poorly.
Demotivating, depressing work environment.
Small, dirty offices with very little desk space and no air-conditioning.

Advice to Management

BT used to treat engineers fairly in the UK, why not do the same in Ireland?

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    We are one of the market leaders in our space, and we have an unrivalled portfolio of customers. In practically every vertical, the key players trust us with their managed network services.
    We have a solutions oriented, can do attitude, we are driven by the customers.

    Cons

    The flexibility in offering such a great variety of options with our services and the reality of the technology and the regulatory environment can lead to intense frustration at times, and a lot of time is soaked up putting out fires and managing installation delays. However, given the folks that leave and come back, I'm not sure it's much different at OBS and VZB.

    Advice to Management

    invest in systems and give yourselves an objective to reduce the friction in the day to day operations of the business.
