    I worked at Telefónica part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Staff contracts are great. You get to leave the store soon after shop is closed, rarely have to stay behind for long.

    Cons

    Targets! Management are so persistent on targets they will encourage you to practically do anything for a sale. It's better to work in a busier store, in quieter stores it is harder to exceed all your targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store managers need to be more understanding and realistic of targets in certain areas.

    Current Employee - Content Director in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There was a lot of autonomy in the Content department, as long as you were creating traffic and/or money.

    Cons

    Board management who didn't have a clue about content, social networks, or non-voice data.
    People pushing wasteful initiatives to advance their careers, at a cost of millions to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to trust successful people and let them get on with their job, even if you don't understand what they do.
