    Pros

    Good pay and conditions, flexible expense policies, progressive for a telco

    Cons

    Still a telco. Large, cumbersome, slow. Run by financiers that know little about digital businesses

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old guard and inject new blood into your business

    Pros

    Large global company with many opportunities. Solid financials. Willingness to move people around the globe to get international experience

    Cons

    Fairly bureaucratic organization. All decisions made or go through Madrid. Decision making can be slow given the many layers of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce management layers, empower your managers.

    Pros

    - Great Work Culture
    - Great Cross funtional Teams Worldwide
    - Everybody is willing to help and support other teams in the resolution of any issue
    - Great benefits and salaries according to the market
    - Best company I've ever worked so far
    - Telefonica is being updating its portafolio, strategy and vision for the future of Telecom Business, which in my opinion is ahead of their competitors

    Cons

    - Needs to improve processes to speed up the time to attend customer needs
    - Company is affected at the moment due to the crisis in Spain and Europe which limits the budget for the rest of the Regions (I hope is solved in the 3 to 5 years term)

    Advice to Management

    - Actually is positive, the Leadership and Management (International and Global Services) are outstanding! Bus specially in the US. Senior Management Team is simply the best!

    Pros

    Global Corporation, strong financials and job security in working in the USA for foreign employees.

    Cons

    Hierarchy, does not recognize that the USA needs USA executives and employees to run the operations and not expats. Serious leadership issues with executive team that has been left in place and with new team of managers.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your operations in the USA with USA managers as you would in Brazil and Spain and you will do a much better job of building a winning team in the USA. Do a better job of communicating with the employees and not managing through fear tactics.
