    I have been working at BT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have decent work,can be a good learning experience if you are willing to sacrifice all your time for BT and have no other work and a decent salary.

    Cons

    They really wont have any work life balance , people who prefer a work life balance shouldn't join here.. You should be a show man to get into the eyes of the management and take all the credit for other work.The worst working environment i have ever worked in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain people for longer please start thinking about work life balance, people welfare and not only the deliverable in projects which sometime might be far too stretched for a person or even for a group.

    Pros

    few teams are good, work from home

    Cons

    Too much work pressure, Not happy kind of work environment, stingy BT wont spend money to hire adequate employees but try to extract maximum from employees.. no work life balance, you may get leave but will be working on vacation also...work pressure will kill you..NoBody cares about employee health.. Junk Company to work with.. Never dare to enter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pushing employees to the maximum and adding too much pressure wont help BT in long run..
