    I worked at Telefónica full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for. They look after their staff well and incentivise you to work hard for them.

    Cons

    They sold out some of their loyal staff to Capita in 2013. This didn't go down so well with those TUPE'd over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the staff morale, and keep the communication lines open. This will improve the way people work if they're included in decissions.

    Pros

    - Work from home - Laptop and phone given as soon as you join - something always exciting happening in the office - you learn a lot and you are thrown in the deep in as soon as you start - plenty responsibilities - flexible working - everyone had been in the company 10 years + and they all gushed about how much they loved the company - great company values and ethics - benefits, benefits, benefits! e.g free o2 tickets, 30% discount on O2, discount on cafe food lol

    Cons

    - career progression for an intern is difficult - graduate programme is extremely competitive - salary for intern is extremely low

    Shape your intern programme to accomodate career progression if you're hiring graduates as interns
