Former Employee - Product Manager in Madrid (Spain)

I worked at Telefónica full-time for more than a 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.

Recommends
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Former Employee - Planning Supervisor of the Data Network in Caracas, Capital District (Venezuela)

    I worked at Telefónica full-time for 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.
