    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

    Pros

    You get good money here as compared to the other companies in the market.There are less folks currently associated with the company so it is best time to join the company.

    Cons

    Too much work with tough timelines.Work never ends here.There is no onsite opportunity in BT,all onsite opportunities are with the Vendors.Although being the client of vendors,it is vendors who are making more money at onsite.
