    I have been working at Deutsche Telekom full-time

    Pros

    safe job, options for exciting challenges

    Cons

    wide parts of Deutsche Telekom are jobs with no option for development. Nearly all units in Germany are "German" (by mind set and language). Even those in the headquarter.

    Advice to Management

    change culture to better recognition of employees no matter what job they are doing. Give normal employees more freedom to make decisions in their daily work. Reduce complexity of procedures and work-flow. Reduce level of management. Make employees proud to work for the company.


  2. Great place to work.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Deutsche Telekom include the: benefits salary budget travel freedom vacation time support teamwork positive environment

    Cons

    There aren't really too many downsides to working at Deutsche Telekom. One challenge is having to deal with colleagues based in the European time zone.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. The company has ressources to invest in intesting projects. Given the shere number of employees, you will surely find like minded colleagues.

    Cons

    Decision making can be slow, but what would you expect from such a big company. Top management turnover means that they are sometimes out of touch with the base of the company. Image problems and scandals make it hard to be a proud employee.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more actively with middle management about company plans, especially with management outside of headquarters. Take professional development more seriously and promote from within.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Work / Life Balance leans clearly in favour of the 'life' component Decent benefits package

    Cons

    Not particularly challenging No accountability for decisions or performance Performance culture very lacking meaning that there is litte incentive for driven, motivated calibers

    Advice to Management

    The soft stuff is the hard stuff - get performance management right and an accountability and performance culture will develop. The rest will follow.

    I have been working at Deutsche Telekom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - man kann alle möglichen Weiterentwicklungen machen - neue Positionen und Projekte findet man gut intern - super Verständnis für privates Leben - Projekte im Ausland möglich - gute Förderung bei guter Leistung

    Cons

    - ständiger Abbaudruck - ein rießen Tanker - viel bewegt sich nicht - leider hindert der Betriebsrat oft mehr als er nützt - work-life Balance kommt stark auf den Bereich an - viele arbeiten sich tot andere langweilen sich

    Advice to Management

    - Mitarbeiter mehr selbst mitgestalten lassen - nicht so viel top down - mehr Entscheidungen in die Linie geben - nicht alles durch 1000 Gremien geben - bessere Kontrolle über welche Bereiche wirklich zu überlastet sind und welche unterfordert
