    Pros

    The people who work here on the ground are fun and eager to work hard. Depending on what department you're working in, you can be treated with a certain level of respect. Pay is slightly above average for the industry. Some great managers here, but they're a dying breed.

    Cons

    Bulling is rife. There is a culture of bullying in O2, mostly supported and encouraged by senior management. "Managing People Out" is a well mentioned, but unwritten, tactic of management where they will make your life total hell until you resign... so bullying is effectively a management tool for forced attrition. Bullying that is reported is generally brushed under the carpet, and many people have left because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the culture of bullying out of O2 and you might actually get that 'Best Company to Work For' award.
