    I have been working at Deutsche Telekom AG

    Pros

    Have access to upper level management and casual working environment. Telecommuting is acceptable. Senior leader ship gives you great insight into the over direction of the company. You can be heard in almost any field inside the company you have an interest in.

    Cons

    Long hours expected and holiday taken are looked down on. Getting prompted or raises is difficult. Though you can give yourself what ever title you want, you will not get any more respect or bonus. The balance of work life definitely leans on work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilization of resources are not fully developed and lack of process lets things fall through the cracks.

    I have been working at Deutsche Telekom AG part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Freedom in work, you can submit proposals and contribute new ideas. You are being trusted by your direct managers. Helpful, open and friendly fellow colleagues especially on the lower hierarchy levels. Great office culture.

    Cons

    Middle management is mainly occupied with processes and is fear-driven. Quality of middle management unfortunately below average; there is no real leadership (with a few positive exceptions).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the right people, not only the ones who simply fit the system. There are some great people in the lower hierarchies who would fit management positions.
