I have been working at Telefónica

Pros

Some very talented technical professionals to work with. Lots of different projects to work on and the technology available is leading edge.

Cons

Lack of any standards on the technical and human side. No methodology to follow so everyone is just trying hard without knowing what to do to improve. No improvement plan to learn from mistakes or accountability. A very hostile environment where everyone is scared to reach beyond the very minimum at the risk of being chastised. Those in charge fill their needs by avoiding issues or denigrating those below them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Everyone in a position of management is scared of being discovered that they don't know what they are doing. Stop looking over your shoulder and hire the most competent people you can and give them tools to succeed.

    It doesn't matter if the job is done right, as long as you're sucking up to managers you'll get away with anything.
