    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.

    Pros

    You can identify opportunities to work alla round the world in the Global services division.
