    I have been working at Telefónica

    Pros

    Flexibility on the office hours whenever is necesary. Stable job if you don't mess it up, unlikelyhood to get fired. Culture aimed at relationships and relaxed labor demands (this is a Pro for some people but a Con for others).

    Cons

    Things might change on a everyday basis, lack of direction of the overall business. Lack of an achievement culture, if you are a high performer you will be frustrated. Strong top-down culture and lack of opportunities to make new or innovative contributions to the business. New ideas are not wellcome, they are either ignored or they come become against you. A lot, but I mean a lot of corporate intertia to shift the way things are usually done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved. Avoid on-the fly decitions and try to make them out of some rationale. Listen to the bottome line where are the ones who battle out every day the survival of the business.

    I worked at Telefónica as a contractor (more than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    smart people, smart ideas and customer service is KING

    Cons

    leadership is old school - still going through transition - great words but what hits the troops is inconsistent. All communication through Powerpoint !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    deliver fewer things well, connect more to your audience - your employees are your customers - communication with them, not at them
