    Pros

    Working with a multidisciplinary, cooperative and innovative team into a technology environment where people are frequently asked to be new and to recreate.

    Some development requires you to be more than the half time hands on. Also, since it means an extremely and complex company you should negociating everything with everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a good place to accelerate your career in on of the most exciting areas around the world.

    Telehealth at Telefonica

    Former Employee - National Sales Manager in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - National Sales Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent insight to technology and a refreshing approach to Telehealth within a global context.

    Cons

    No real understanding of selling in to the NHS and the timescales involved. Also needed to adopt a more academic stance providing evidence of benefit vs risk at a patient level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    return to the UK market when Telehealth is more accepted by the NHS and look for the sales via consumers/end users demand not NHS demand.

    Pros

    Great work environment and great people. The pay and rewards are more than average for equivalent roles at other companies.

    Cons

    Advancing in this business can be tough if one is not well connected within the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to get to know and develop the people who show a strong potential and a true desire to succeed and grow within your business. My experience with Telefonica has been that some people do not progress due to their own bosses not supporting their career progression.
