    Pros

    Medium perks, slightly above average salary, great network. Good employee discounts.

    I have been working at Deutsche Telekom as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Once your in, your contract keeps rolling.

    Cons

    Terrible location
    Terrible canteen, I mean really bad!
    No communication with colleagues, management, clients or users
    They sack all the talent and keep the deadwood as the talent asks why the cruisers are allowed to cruise, its insane!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead wood, ask yourself why ALL projects in the last 5 years have failed.

    Pros

    Work / Life Balance leans clearly in favour of the 'life' component
    Decent benefits package

    Cons

    Not particularly challenging

    Performance culture very lacking meaning that there is litte incentive for driven, motivated calibers

    Advice to Management

    The soft stuff is the hard stuff - get performance management right and an accountability and performance culture will develop. The rest will follow.
