    Pros

    Good salaries. Many holidays. If you want job security and a good salary this is your company.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Very German organisation, hierarchy is very important, stick to the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Mid management is quite poor. Just want to keep their privileges and do not take risks.

    Pros

    Good, friendly people. Pay is competitive. The company is doing a lot of things. Once you're there it is quite easy to lateral move and find your next opportunity. Work life balance is good and the Cologne / Bonn region is really nice.

    Cons

    1. It is a huge company. Which means, it is quite slow, and you often end up spending a lot of time finding the right contact person in the organization. It's also a very politics prone environment, so you'd better be good at that if you want to be successful at DT. Unfortunately, because of the very low turn over in personal, the opportunities to get promoted are very rare. 2. Well, no big news here, but this is a German company, so you'd better be accustomed to the German business culture to strive in the organization. Really good command of German is mandatory if you're based in Germany. Also that means that you live in a very risk-averse organization. Don't expect too much innovation to come from it.

    Pros

    * Collaborative work atmosphere, great colleagues, excellent working conditions * Good compensation and benefits * Good worklife balance

    Cons

    * Increased focus on Telecommunications leaves lot of (boring) telco jobs and very few opportunities in emerging (interesting) areas * Poor middle management leads to lack of clear direction, no sense of purpose for projects and lot of internal politics * Over the years, Deutsche Telekom has become very germany-focused - offering very few opportunities with international exposure.
