    Pros

    Will not get bored if you enjoy meeting multiple people and companies since each engagement is different.

    Cons

    No training, except for what they call KQs (Knowledge Quest). These are given by employees trying to make a name for themselves. It is way too high level and majority times, just a way for consultants to say they "share their knowledge". Company does not invest in its' own people. this useless vehicle is also used in promotability criteria which is just a waste since the really good people don't have time to put together these KQs.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. You've started weeding out the old INS mentality but have not come to grips with treating the Americas as part of BT. Consultants are leaving because many of them have not had raises in YEARS, for some over 6 years! Plus benefits are different between the US and UK so how do you think your employees feel, but as second class citizens!

  8. Amazing training opportunities for career development.

    Pros

    Job security and great pay when bench-marked against other telecom companies.

    Cons

    Bottle neck in administration with HR.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the challenges faced with recruiting for a huge global provider, it would be ideal placing the right employees within the right departments.

  9. Great company to work for - good pay and benefits, and talented people get promoted.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to develop a career, and the commercial /product teams are (mostly) filled with really talented people who care about doing a good job.

    Pay and benefits are fairly generous, and a little higher than what other telcos offer.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape that needs cutting through when dealing with some areas of the business.

    HR department moves very slowly with just about everything. Whenever I've moved jobs within the company it's always taken 2 months plus for my pay to catch up (backdated when is finally sorted however )

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on making things simple. We've made good progress on this in the last 18 months, but there's still lots of horrendously complex customer processes and ways of working floating around.

    Stability needs to be emphasized

  11. Advertised growth plan within BT - one year programme, after this one year the same size of people have been laid off...
