    I have been working at NTT DATA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Highly Professional global company Good reputation respected by customers High quality UK head office at Royal Exchange Expanding capability and client base in UK

    Cons

    Complex corporate structure Tend to get pigeon holed out on customer site - easy to lose touch with what is happening with NTTData All staff get pushed at Virgin Media despite their core skills/knowledge Bit confused - portray a Japanese background and culture but in reality main business is selling cheap offshore indian resources.

    Advice to Management

    Make better use of the skills that your staff possess.

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + Telco Leaders - ability to pull on Global thought leadership and technical innovation in telecommunications thanks to strong links with parent and sister companies. + Growing - it's possible to become a "go to" person in emerging technology as there are so few technical experts. + Training - there's a lot of opportunity to go on external courses and to come aware with recognised certifications. There's also a... big emphasis on sharing what you've learnt. + Flexibility - there are those that have been in their roles for years and those change on a quarterly basis; however this isn't always by choice.

    Cons

    - Telco Only - there's not much attraction for clients to go with NTT DATA over competitors; therefore the contracts that are secured, especially the meatier and more interesting ones, are nearly always Telco. - Political - senior managers' opinions weigh a lot more than they do elsewhere. You won't be able to get by through doing your job well: you will need to seek the limelight of the senior team. Working can... become very difficult once any single senior manager is not enamoured with you. - Autocratic - often management talk about a flat management structure, but it's very hierarchical: the huge number of "ranks" illustrates this well. You will get many senior experienced hires that are not downward looking and who are highly sales focused, which does not create a good atmosphere. This is further complicated by an ineffective split in the company itself. - Lack of Flexibility - there are those that choose to be in the role for the long term or the short term, but, given the lack of marketshare, the risk of reassignment is far higher. This is not a fault of the company, as it's a consequence of its small size, but it's something to be aware of.

    Advice to Management

    > Be honest with new entrants and yourselves by embracing the unique Telco position you have. Start as a boutique and then expand; acting like you're a realistic competitor in other areas may seem like a good goal, but it looks disingenuous. > The senior management structure and overall ranking need to be changed: a cultural flattening needs to happen to improve morale and simplify promotions. > 360... feedback needs to be brought in urgently and it needs tangible consequences.

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Young dynamic work force and senior management encourage working place collaboration. Lots of consultancy work so plenty of travel. Most people of helpful especially London office. Career path is there as the company is growing but limited. They do have a training budget and encouraged to do training. They pay market rates. Globally very big company but uk it's a combo of small companies under the name brand so... can have its challenges. Good pension scheme. No one to really hold you back to try different things out. Work life balance is good depending on your manager attitude.

    Cons

    Digital practice are quite aggressive and do not have a good reputation internally so do some of the ex telco staff as they now run the place. Birmingham staff very grumpy but other offices staff are OK. Expenses policy needs updating, I. E travel Lodge. Can be difficult to get things done due to lots of companies they brought out still act alone. Difficult to go up the ladder especially if you not part of the... inner circle of lower management.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at NTT DATA

    Pros

    As a call center it really focus on customer service, don’t expect to grow fast since the options are limited, however if you show good leadership skills and going above and beyond you might have a chance as a team leader and then supervisor. Good company to start your career but not to remain there for years.

    Cons

    Junior leadership team, stressful environment, outsourcing mindset.

    Advice to Management

    Clear view of the strategy and merit increase should be measured with a robust KPI plan.
