    I have been working at BT full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    flexible working arrangement
    challenging work
    you get hands on experience on a broad verities of areas as the operation in AUS is relatively small.

    Cons

    long hours
    a lot of meetings happens out of business hours
    prefer to hire outsiders over promotion within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there should be a focus on develop talent within the company itself. At the moment the company does not have a culture of helping individual to develop and seek promotions. most vacant position prefer candidate from outside.

    A yes sir culture and no respect for employees under certain LOB.Never join retail team.If you want to work and have a normal work life balance this company is not for you until and unless you are a manager.

    You have great people but also a lot of politicians who destroys the company , its people and its ethics.

    I have been working at BT full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good dynamic working, collaborative and interesting work in a company with an ever evolving business model

    Cons

    Too many Director and Managing Director, too few manager level staff, particularly in HQ functions. Very difficult to accelerate careers to Director level at the moment and MD level promotions almost unheard of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut more MDs quickly and give space for other promotions otherwise you risk losing a whole segment of talent over the next 5 years. Mediocre senior managers will stay, the best will all leave.
