Pros

stable salary: you know you're going to be paid. Sometimes event 2-3 days before the end of month.
One of the biggest companies in spain (if not the biggest one).

Cons

Headcount fixed... and declining.
There are no new hires, unless it's the son/friend/nephew of a high-level executive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

"Gerentes" are free to do whatever they want.
Directors and above are playing only office polytics: they don't have any idea about what's going on.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    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.
