Pros

Exposure to different tech trends

Cons

Constant transformation means things never settle down. Means the organisation never gets forward momentum,
As people expect yet another restructure round the corner

Advice to Management

Stop making people having to re apply for their jobs every 6 months in the UK

    Pros

    Innovation areas get to try out ideas with new and exciting technology, the people are good, some are exceptional especially in wed dev, creative tech and innovation. If you can deliver the work, flexible work life balance is second to none.

    Cons

    A dislocation from the reality of the market, and no real answer to the question of what happens to telcos in a digital future (Hint, you are a dumb pipe). Closing down of the Digital subsidiary not exactly an inspired move - chaos reigns. Any energy or enthusiasm has been wiped out, and pay levels that were below market rate might be acceptable when excitement is flowing - not so now. No real career progression available, and upper management is 99% male, white and predominately Spanish.

    Advice to Management

    Top level strategy is unclear, vacuous communication from leaders. Lower level strategy and day to day tactics either non-existent or poorly communicated - honestly, I couldn't tell which. This company has no real vision, chooses to hide behind jargon and management bs.

    Great environment in a new innovative company, unfortunately too much Telefonica legacy.

    Pros

    environment
    work-life balance
    opportunity to grow
    innovation
    approachability of senior leadership

    Cons

    no ownership
    slow moving
    too much Tef legacy, decisions now again made in Spain

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, empower middle management, hire outside talent and focus less on politics, get the digital talent in who are unlikely to be the managers that have been with the company for >10 years
    Be global instead of so Spain focused
