I worked at Telefónica full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The global aspect of Telefónica allows for state-of-the-art technology to be a common ground. This is great because it allows the company to offer a vast selection of services to its customers with minimun investment.

Cons

The unstable political/economical situation in Venezuela (where I was posted) was sometimes a stopper when new innovative plans were to be implemented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always keep the customer as the top priority. It proved to be the right strategy.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Targets are more than reasonable with constant rewards for good performance and support if your struggling, the low staff turnover demonstrates this

    Cons

    Systems are not currently the greatest but they recognise this and are working to improve them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilise the talents that exist within the company to tackle issues, most problems could be solved by sharing the challenge with everyone and listening to the feedback given. This means specifics, good ideas come from the desire to overcome challenges, the challenges need to be shared.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Madrid (Spain)

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a solid company, no bad salaries, interesting jobs if you find a good department (some departments may not be that interesting)
    Good package of social benefits

    Cons

    - Telco momentum. Lack of new sources of business and traditional business is falling
    - Too traditional company, at least in Spain
    - Difficult promotion. Can be a bit nepotic
    - Decision chain is too long and heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is necesary to change inside culture, at least in Spain. Too much burocracy that can kill opportunities for new businesses and staff motivation. Decision making takes too long, employees feel they do not make decisions.
