Pros

The people the company does not realise the level of commitment form the staff

Cons

The rat race culture and the blame culture too many managers are more interested in covering their own backs instead of resolving issues. Also senior management have in the past told bare face lies to staff in relation to orgainisational changes the justification they give is to maintain the business as usual status.

Advice to Management

Value staff more and treat them like adults

    Pros

    Telefonica is the main fixed and mobile operator in telecom business, so everyone want to do business with it. Interesting opportunities to networking with the main players of TIC ecosystem. Big opportunities to impact the ICT in developing countris. Big budget and opportunities to do things. If you look it and take the risk, great opportunities to get freedom inside company

    Cons

    Many things to improve in HHRR. Not a clear policy about recluiting and managing the talent. Not yet a private company culture...

    Advice to Management

    Lead as a leader, with the example. Take care of your teams, empower them, let them to improve, offer. Remember that HHRR work for the business unit and not inverse order!!!

    A culture of bullying is its Achilles heel

    Pros

    The people who work here on the ground are fun and eager to work hard. Depending on what department you're working in, you can be treated with a certain level of respect. Pay is slightly above average for the industry. Some great managers here, but they're a dying breed.

    Cons

    Bulling is rife. There is a culture of bullying in O2, mostly supported and encouraged by senior management. "Managing People Out" is a well mentioned, but unwritten, tactic of management where they will make your life total hell until you resign... so bullying is effectively a management tool for forced attrition. Bullying that is reported is generally brushed under the carpet, and many people have left because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Get the culture of bullying out of O2 and you might actually get that 'Best Company to Work For' award.
