    I have been working at BT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Non hierarchical culture, great people, supportive environment, very good work life balance and flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    High complex disparate organisation, currently significantly restructuring, particularly its Global Services business. A lot of legacy process and governance and embedded culture that makes an organisation that lacks agility, thereby impacting decision making and speed to market.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on agile business.
    Focus on core repeatable business, and a simplified product portfolio
    Avoid complete commercial or product offerings
    Empower autonomy and the ability to make decisions.
