You will have to channel your inner chi to deal with this place

Project Manager (Current Employee)

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

ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementEveryone 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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.

    I worked at Telefónica


    Pros: -dynamic, lots of intitiatives, strong brand Cons: -constant restructures (often once a year now), where you have to reapply for your own job or another in the org -fairly minimal opportunity for growth.… Advice to Senior Management: people want to grow and develop and not just stay at the same level year after year, and have to reapply for their own… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
