    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance. Working with most exciting customers in the IT industry. Great perks, pay and bonuses

    Cons

    Very disorganised but a little like a startup in some ways. Sometimes projects are left to last minute and everyone panics working into the early hours but that's not very often. It's the worst internal IT environment known to mankind. Archaic policies and practices coupled with archaic technology means communication is difficult (ironically).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ more people and invest more into IT

    I have been working at Telefónica as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor, I felt like part of the team. Company went well beyond normal support allowing work from home. No training required. Company values employee engagement first.

    Cons

    I would have liked to have stayed and worked on other projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set career paths and development plans. Most people seemed to stay exactly where they were three years after I joined. There are allot of yes men.

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company really focuses on taking care of its employees. The pay is good and so are the benefits. To me, it's definitely one of the best companies to work for in Venezuela. Plus, the working environment is just great. One thing in particular that I like a lot abouta Telefonica Venezuela is that there are many opportunities to move and to grow.

    Cons

    It could be a little more organized. There is usually a lot of work, so you have to be prepared to stay afeter hours sometimes.
