I have been working at Portugal Telecom

Pros

"Steady Job" - If you want a job that allows you to live in a quiet place by the sea it may be a good choice
Some of the work is engaging and interesting, but only in hardware or software development.

Cons

Low Pay when compared to other similar companies
Small Town company, not multi-cultural and centered around the main office
Management promoted from within and not very open to new ideas
Work-Life balance is an issue in software development, installation and support - other areas are ok

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire Managers from outside the company, it need's fresh ideas.
Fire people occasionally if they don't meet their goals.
Be more open to fresh ideas.

    I have been working at Portugal Telecom

    Pros

    Professional development and growth; largest telecoms company in Portugal with strong presence in Africa, Brasil and East Timor, which potencialy allows for an international work experience; innovative and dinamic company.

    Cons

    Very heavy structure, which sometimes may generate a gab between middle and higher management and the full grasp of company's goals and objectives; large disparity of salaries between employees that came from the old public structure and recent employees; can be very extremely demanding in what concerns allowing employees to balance personal life and career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should incentive better balance between personal life and working time. They should also make more efforts to balance salaries between middle management based on merits.

    Pros

    Large Company, strong leadership!
    Overall a good place to work but if you want to reach top places be sure your properly connected!

    Cons

    It's like a large oil tanker! If you want to change direction you must do it plenty of time ahead!
    Highly concorrential market with tendency to revenue and market share decrease.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest outside Portugal, make PT grow! Don't spend it all in shareholder dividends and aditional revenues. Grow or get swallowed!
