    I worked at BT for more than a year

    Pros

    Has some really good technical people and technology - if only the management and processes didn't get in the way of realising the benefits of these!

    Cons

    Promotions and senior management roles are more linked to who you know and how long you've been there - no obvious link to merit! Processes are slow, bureaucratic and pointless - 6 people to approve a purchase order for $50! Inability to think or behave strategically - classic case study of being penny-wise and pound-foolish
