Current Employee - Customer Call Centre Advisor

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

Pros

Positive environment - challenging role but rewarding

Cons

Shift pattern seems strange, weeks differ, slightly confusing

Advice to Management

Overall happy with my manager, in this current climate I feel very supported.

Current Employee - Delivery Coordinator

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

Pros

Support development through funded apprenticeships and degrees Good benefits Supportive environment. Lots of schemes for employee engagement.

Cons

Low pay compared to other telco providers. The work is very demanding. It's busy but you are expected to take on too much and the pay doesn't reflect the work you put in. Staff aren't back filled,... people are just expected to take on more.

Advice to Management

Pay people better (TTB) and they would be more likely to stay instead of going to competitors.
