    I have been working at Telefónica as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor, I felt like part of the team. Company went well beyond normal support allowing work from home. No training required. Company values employee engagement first.

    Cons

    I would have liked to have stayed and worked on other projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set career paths and development plans. Most people seemed to stay exactly where they were three years after I joined. There are allot of yes men.
