Great place to work in Spain

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Madrid (Spain)

ProsGreat place to work in terms of career advancement, IT opportunities and a leading company in the Telecom world. Also great environment to develop entrepreneurial spirit and to develope new technologies in the Telecom market.

ConsVery hierchical and non result driven in some areas. Can be very difficult to drive change in some of the projects and there is a lot of political issues going on.

Maintaining work-life balance is definitely a challenge with the travel schedule. The firm is working to address this but some of it is inherent in the on-site client service model, whch does bring many benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the internazionalization of the company.

Look for opportunities to leverage the franchise you have built to expand into other lines of business such as direct investing and incubating start-ups.
