    Cons

    Telecom is as essential a service as any nowadays. The work comes with the inherent pressure that comes that comes with working in any place that caters to an essential service that need to be up and running 24x7.

    I have been working at Colt Technology Services for less than a year

    Pros

    Having joined during the pandemic, it has been good to see collaboration works well even as everyone is working from home. Everyone is very welcoming and supportive of those joining in these different times. I have found management teams are very accessible, friendly and helpful colleagues, and support for a work/life balance even when work/life is blurred by working from home all the time.

    Cons

    Still trying to navigate some of the communications channels within the team as well as company wide (skype vs. webex vs. teams vs. sharepoint vs. intranet vs. specific apps) but nothing major to complain about.

    I have been working at Colt Technology Services part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I joined Colt as a part-time employee as I was looking for more flexibility and a good work life balance and Colt has delivered on this. Colt is a supportive and caring employer. Especially during the pandemic Colt has been listening to employees and gathering data via surveys to make sure employees are provided the right kind of support they need to continue working in a safe and efficient manner. Fun is also a big part of our culture and Colt makes sure employees get to party hard! We also get great support in our career and self development via our internal and external learning platforms. It's a great place to work and be recognised for your hard work.

    Cons

    Colt can do better with some of the systems and processes. But I have only seen improvements happening ever since I started working here!

    I have been working at Colt Technology Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Colt cares about its people and their wellbeing. This was evident even before the pandemic, but the company has really put a focus on this in 2020: hardship funds, an allowance to ensure ideal setup for home working and a very stringent view on office reopenings. When the UK government suggested offices could safely reopen, Colt smartly held off and is still allowing all staff globally to work fully remote to this day. Work-life balance continues to be a massive pro of working at Colt. The company practises what it preaches. Excellent benefits and great company culture.

    Cons

    Some rather silo-ed thinking and outdated systems, though these are slowly being replaced.
