    I have been working at Portugal Telecom full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good team environment. You can learn things with professionals from different areas.
    Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The overuse of recruitment agencies raise some doubts about values beeing payed.
    These "middle-man" are useless and only there to get rich. They don't give formation and you are on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the excessive outsourced people. Cut the middle-man (recruitment agencies) and offer good conditions to these people. They are good professionals, and the recruitment agencies are not a added value, they are only there to keep some money from our work (there are agencies keeping 30%)

    Pros

    Great business, a dominant company in Portugal, and a lot of innovation that changed Portugal technology landscape

    Cons

    Future 100% uncertain, due to the shareholder change that is to happen, but never is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please regain your power to lead, the downsides are always the place where management should lead. No the other way around.

    Stable company, strong management, lots of work and projects going at the same time makes it an interesting place to work.

    Keep up with the good work, make portugal telecom a market force together with Oi and dont forget of the people that pull all the levers and push all the buttons

    Pros

    Lots of skilled people and many interesting projects, which makes for an exciting workplace and great learning opportunity, especially for new workers. Merger with Brasil based Oi will likely bring new opportunities for career development.

    Crisis in Portugal doesn't allow for the best effort / reward combination at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to make the merger with Oi a complete success for both sides!
