Telefónica

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Madrid (Spain)

ProsIt 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 Senior ManagementIt 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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.

It proved… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
