I have been working at Telefónica full-time

Pros

O2 UK: See what you can do. What an amazing brand and great place to work. Fun, exciting, dynamic, innovative. You can reminisce about all these good things because it is all gone and the company is managed from an impersonal meeting room north of Madrid like a Spanish government organisation. Pay is good, the good pension is gone and they have an extreme version of hot-desking implemented in Slough that may rival Nordic traditions of flexible working. You can work from home and expect to travel to Madrid on a regular basis...

Cons

The company is managed like a government department; extreme micromanagement and medieval promotion methods. Those in the circle of trust are promoted and congratulated in numerous employee events.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are generally very nice and there is a culture of flexible working.

    Cons

    Career progression is based on coffee talks rather than merit. There is no structured talent management approach and it is very hard to get to senior roles without spending lots of time network and pushing through.

    Very political company, things get decided by committee and too many people like to have a voice at the table just to show their face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are somehow detached from reality. They have been here for a long time and have not been able to transform the company.

    Doesn't Recommend
