    I worked at BT Financial Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    BT has always had a real international feel to it. This has given employees at BT great international working opportunities. They also have a good local culture

    Cons

    Given it’s an international company the working hours can really stretch your work life balance. If you don’t have ambitions to move internationally career moves can be limited

    Advice to Management

    Keep workload and work life balance in mind to keep people engaged

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at BT Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great bunch of staff, particularly at the 'lower' rungs of the ladder. Social and casual atmosphere. Flexible working arrangements and work-life balance.

    Cons

    As you climb the ranks you realise how little the Senior Managers care about their customers and their staff. Plenty of emphasis is put on attempting to come across caring, but fails miserably and internal staff surveys speak volumes.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to hire the best people for the role, not their friends. Put the customer first, not their own bonus. BT needs new leadership teams.
