    Pros

    Great work environment and great people. The pay and rewards are more than average for equivalent roles at other companies.

    Cons

    Advancing in this business can be tough if one is not well connected within the business.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know and develop the people who show a strong potential and a true desire to succeed and grow within your business. My experience with Telefonica has been that some people do not progress due to their own bosses not supporting their career progression.

    Pros

    smart people, smart ideas and customer service is KING

    Cons

    leadership is old school - still going through transition - great words but what hits the troops is inconsistent. All communication through Powerpoint !

    Advice to Management

    deliver fewer things well, connect more to your audience - your employees are your customers - communication with them, not at them

    Pros

    Leading network (vs competitors), good packages, people focussed, great benefits, flexible working culture (e.g. work from home, hot desks), interesting mobile innovations, in-house training (including Telefonica University courses in Barcelona)

    Cons

    constant restructures (every 6-12 months), confusing strategy, disjointed local brands (i.e. collection of local networks O2, Movistar, Vivo, and not 1 single global company), growing culture of uncertainty, lots of middle managers but the senior management feel very distant.

    Pros

    some really good perks, customer focus is key and people development is really important

    Cons

    staff matrix is very lean, doesn't match the footfall and this leads to many a poor experience for both staff and customers.

    Advice to Management

    be more sincere with your staff by recognizing them for their talents and not letting them get sidelined by 'favourites' who on many a occasion aren't as good or worthy to be promoted.
