    Pros

    • There huge amount of benefits for employees;
    • The visibility of your work is great because everybody knows the company and you can achieve millions with your work;
    • Work have a good flow and projects are clear and well defined (at least in my team);
    • Use and adapt a lot of methodologies of work (Scrum, XP, TDD) and have well defined pipelines;
    • Telefónica sponsors a lot of events , conventions and courses, of course employees have an easier access to them;
    • A lot of collaboration of co-works, besides the numbers of the company works in small teams so there is good communication but information travel slow;
    • A lot of changes the company is always moving and re-organizing itself.

    Cons

    • The information travels slow because the distance (specially with spain) and some projects can be delayed for months;
    • It's too easy to be forget here, too many thing happening so if your don't improve and show yourself you will be stuck where you are;
    • Bosses and directors changes a lot so is easy to loose focus for a while;
    • Sometimes your project can just disappear and you loose all your work.

    Advice to Management

    • Get more involved with day-by-day operations to understand which can lead to better task organization and prioritization;
    • Tech leaders should be more 360º professionals.

    Pros

    The global aspect of Telefónica allows for state-of-the-art technology to be a common ground. This is great because it allows the company to offer a vast selection of services to its customers with minimun investment.

    Cons

    The unstable political/economical situation in Venezuela (where I was posted) was sometimes a stopper when new innovative plans were to be implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep the customer as the top priority. It proved to be the right strategy.
