Awesome Technology and Products with innovative ideas

The top 5 executives have the say in everything. All other employees work in a sweat shop style

Open communication, regular meetings with employees. Set proper direction. Hire good quality people

    Pros

    Working for BT will challenge you and allow you to learn from the good and the bad.

    Cons

    Failure to integrate acquisitions. Decision making is not distributed -- tends to go up the chain. Lack of executive direction. Recent execs focus on personal compensation versus proper restructuring of the company to meet market needs and provide shareholder value.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your own business, seek individuals with proven ways of successfully conducting business differently, and engage those individuals in leading the entire company in its transformation (execs, don't assume you know the answers when you don't know the business and don't look to external consultants to take your incorrect inputs and define a restructure).

    Pros

    Knowledgeable people and interesting projects. Work is very much field driven, despite what upper management says. Being a consultant here can be an absolute joy depending on project. Even a bad project is never too bad because of the home office support.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to get reviews and raises - almost to the point of nagging. Communication on integration with BT proper has been sparse. Almost to the point that many are wondering if we'll ever integrate. Also, this is sometimes used as an excuse not to make salary adjustments ("wait until the integration").

    Advice to Management

    More communication about BT integration, direction of the company after integrations, etc.
