Does BT offer parental leave?

Pros

Some good benefits - parental leave, holiday allowance, pension and sometimes a decent bonus pay out Big company that promoted internal hiring so it was easy to make change in direction in your career and move between departments Used to be flexible working could work at home at least one day a week - may have changed now. Great office location by St Paul's

Cons

Can't speak for everywhere as every department was different - recruitment had a poor strategy and was understaffed. Team managed ridiculous amounts of vacancies and were forced to give a below average service. No investment in team socials or events. Were just given 20pounds a head extra at christmas. Leadership changed often

Advice to Management

Have a leader that rally's the team together to boost moral. So even if demand on the role is high people are happy to be there.
