    - Great Cross funtional Teams Worldwide
    - Everybody is willing to help and support other teams in the resolution of any issue
    - Great benefits and salaries according to the market
    - Best company I've ever worked so far
    - Telefonica is being updating its portafolio, strategy and vision for the future of Telecom Business, which in my opinion is ahead of their competitors

    Cons

    - Needs to improve processes to speed up the time to attend customer needs
    - Company is affected at the moment due to the crisis in Spain and Europe which limits the budget for the rest of the Regions (I hope is solved in the 3 to 5 years term)

    Advice to Management

    - Actually is positive, the Leadership and Management (International and Global Services) are outstanding! Bus specially in the US. Senior Management Team is simply the best!
