    I have been working at Portugal Telecom full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great business, a dominant company in Portugal, and a lot of innovation that changed Portugal technology landscape

    Cons

    Future 100% uncertain, due to the shareholder change that is to happen, but never is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please regain your power to lead, the downsides are always the place where management should lead. No the other way around.

    Pros

    One of the best places to start a career in Portugal with their PT Trainees program. They keep you updated with the latest techs and tools. Salary is OK

    Cons

    As like most big corporations, it may not be easy to progress in the hierarchy.

    Pros

    Stable company, strong management, lots of work and projects going at the same time makes it an interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes its hard to change people from old habits because the incumbent, state owned telecom provider still rings a bell to some employees, mostly older ones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the good work, make portugal telecom a market force together with Oi and dont forget of the people that pull all the levers and push all the buttons

    Pros

    Lots of skilled people and many interesting projects, which makes for an exciting workplace and great learning opportunity, especially for new workers. Merger with Brasil based Oi will likely bring new opportunities for career development.

    Cons

    Crisis in Portugal doesn't allow for the best effort / reward combination at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to make the merger with Oi a complete success for both sides!
