    Former Employee - National Sales Manager in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - National Sales Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent insight to technology and a refreshing approach to Telehealth within a global context.

    Cons

    No real understanding of selling in to the NHS and the timescales involved. Also needed to adopt a more academic stance providing evidence of benefit vs risk at a patient level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    return to the UK market when Telehealth is more accepted by the NHS and look for the sales via consumers/end users demand not NHS demand.

    Current Intern - Database Administrator in Madrid (Spain)
    Current Intern - Database Administrator in Madrid (Spain)

    I have been working at Telefónica as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    For starters the salary is better than most of the Spanish companies and your job is very stable. The company works with the newest technologies so get know all the new products.

    Cons

    Most of the employees have been working in the company for more than 10 years, their salaries are very high and they have become lazy because they feel than the company won't fire them. New employees find difficult to start in the company because they don't find any help from their more experiences colleagues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more pressure on the more experienced employees and make sure that new employees have a proper introduction in the company.
