    Pros

    Have access to upper level management and casual working environment. Telecommuting is acceptable. Senior leader ship gives you great insight into the over direction of the company. You can be heard in almost any field inside the company you have an interest in.

    Cons

    Long hours expected and holiday taken are looked down on. Getting prompted or raises is difficult. Though you can give yourself what ever title you want, you will not get any more respect or bonus. The balance of work life definitely leans on work.

    Advice to Management

    Utilization of resources are not fully developed and lack of process lets things fall through the cracks.

    I worked at Deutsche Telekom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good to join if you already have a good salary package.
    Job security is there.
    Most employees are there since last 10 years.
    Work culture is friendly.

    Cons

    Micro management is there. Company policies are not good. Limited scope for growth. No consistency in assignment of designation. Earlier there was work life balance, but since the company adopted 15 days sprint, there is no worklife balance. Sometimes employees are forced to come office on weekends, and this is happening more often since company adopts 15 days sprint.

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee policies. Also, if you are trying to go-ahead with 15 days sprint, then assign limited work to employees, and don't force them to work on weekends.
