    I worked at Deutsche Telekom full-time

    Pros

    The hiring process was short (at least in my case, because the manager immediately accepted me)

    Cons

    The new employee has to learn thing on his own, since the training is held one or two months after being employed. It took three days to get a laptop, and the phone (the most necessary thing didn't arrive). They didn't create me an e-mail address. They did not fully inform me about their products portfolio. When I asked for training the manager told me that I have to stay and watch the others two.I left after three days. This was a Telekom partner. I heard that working at the real Telekom is a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Please review closely your partners. They are the ones who represent you.

    I have been working at Deutsche Telekom full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance is not just a phrase here, but can realisticly be achieved. Contract typically is for 38 or 40 hours per week.

    Cons

    Most of the work just focuses on internal processes. There is very little entrepreneurial spirit and it´s hard to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Remove bureaucratic hurdles and provide room for innovations. The company´s product devisions need to focus more on customers.

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

    Pros

    I did not find any other than you get to play foosball

    Cons

    First of all this company do not have to do anything with Telekom industry and Deutsche Telekom
    The whole company is driven by only few who are there since the companies birth
    The whole company is divided into two parts framework(so called)and module teams.
    The framework team is built to paralyse all other module teams
    Framework team does nothing but wraps every class given by dotnet into another class and makes module teams mandatory to use it.
    Nobody from this company who is so called geek of the company want to share their knowledge making new joiner leave the company

    Advice to Management

    Just grow up and be mature

    Flexible Arbeitszeiten, sonstige Ansprüche alle durch Gewerkschaft geregelt und unterstützt. Gutes Gehalt für einen Job, den jeder Affe machen könnte.

    Cons

    Keine Wertschätzung. Keine Fortbildungen, Keine Perspektiven, Talente werden nicht gefördert. Versprechungen aus dem Vorstellungsgespräch wurden nicht eingehalten. Verträge werden grundsätzlich nicht verlängert.

    Advice to Management

    Haltet eure zusagen ein. Es kann nicht sein, das Mitarbeiter von extern in das Unternehmen mit grossartigen Perspektiven gelockt werden und es keinerlei Optionen gibt
