Re: Good..BT Management are bloody awful
Years back I was a contractor for BT.
Our job was highly technical, and it was decided, in order to get the staff they needed, that the job would be a "management" grade job.
This meant the formerly "technical" grade full time employees working along side us got quite large pay rises.
However when BT decided to shed their contractors to reduce staff on what they called "the bench" (full time employees whose job no longer existed that BT couldn't fire so spent their working time applying for internal jobs) we had a problem.
None of the technical staff, who we needed, could get through the application process as they weren't a high enough grade, and all of the managers who applied were useless.
I lost that position without BT finding a suitable full time employee to replace me.
I learnt some time later it did not go well.
Tells you all you need to know about management culture in BT, totally divorced from reality.
