    I worked at Telefónica

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Reduce management layers, empower your managers.

    Current Employee - Post Sales in Miami, FL
    Current Employee - Post Sales in Miami, FL

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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!

    Telefonica is not committed to the operations in the USA and does not support their people.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Miami, FL

    I have been working at Telefónica

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Current Employee - Sales Executive

    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
