    Pros

    Excellent company with great benefits linked to the music and data sides of the business. Very old technologies used in parts of IT so not great for technical career growth but you'd have to be a fool not to develop excellent general skills in business side of IT. Most contracts since have proved O2 is very professional with its head screwed on.

    Cons

    Terrible management of offshore contractors leaves gaping holes in applications that are probably put there as deliberate money spinners for the developers off shore. Offshore guys confided that brown paper bags change hands regularly to allow money spinners into production.

    I have been working at Telefónica

    Pros

    Great Opportunites right from advisor level all the way up to higher management
    Great perks and discounts
    A solid HR management policy and a company that really supports its employees
    A great culture and overall a great can do attitude and a good change culture

    Cons

    Still has issues from contracts and the BT legacy days
    Managers and even budget holders are not empowered to change individuals salaries even when everyone agrees the current reward scheme for some managers is unfair
    Sometimes too much red tape gets in the way of people doing a good job - but this is getting better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make reward and recognition fairer and empower managers to look at individual circumstances and make sure people are getting paid a fair salary for doing a good job.
