    I worked at Magyar Telekom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary level compare to the country wide avarage. Stable, reliable, safe public company background. Well known company brand that gives prestige to your carrier.

    Cons

    Too many policies and slow official administration processes, both in front office and back office. Decreasing employee benefits. Some structures remained from the state owned past of the company.

    Former Employee - Intern

    I worked at Magyar Telekom part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was my first workplace after university, and it taught me a lot about company culture and teamwork. I really liked that people appreciate you and give you feedback about your work, so to sum it up: I managed to learn many things, and improved in lots of areas, while working in an incentive environment.

    Cons

    I worked in a stagnating department, where it was very hard to improve figures. At first I thought I would be able to bring new ideas into the department, but we could not use most them because of strict legislation in the industry.

    Pros

    Big international company with great opportunities. There are so many sections to choose from it's easy to start your career at the Telekom.

    Cons

    Too big and you have to be pushing too much to get a promotion. The salaries are OK, but if you want to big you either need good connections in the company itself or should search for another one.

    I worked at Magyar Telekom as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The name of the company in your CV looks great

    Cons

    The salary is a joke and the different teams don't think that you are part of them. The company uses the trainees to spare money on full time employees...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher salary and 30-40 hrs work option

    Former Employee - Senior Social Media Manager in Budapest (Hungary)
    Former Employee - Senior Social Media Manager in Budapest (Hungary)

    I worked at Magyar Telekom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, great perks, lots to learn in central functions, room to grow and plenty of resources and opportunities to make things happen (if you're into it).
    Depending on the branch and function you can also get some valuable international experience as well via Deutsche Telekom.

    Cons

    Huge legacy systems, overly complicated & slow bureaucracy, committee decisions, siloes & infighting.
    Comfort and complacency are prevalent; with huge external pressure on the business there is a lot of effort going into shaking up things internally, which causes anxiety in all tiers of management. This leads to bad decisions, mixed messages, hurried execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refresh key functions with fresh talent or face obsolescence.
