I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

With the current rate of unemployment in Spain (26%)? Everyone will claim it is a "secure" company.

Cons

Civil service style of management, high bureaucracy, very different environments with varied treatment for both employees and customers (Telefonica Corp, O2, Telefonica International, European and American countries where Telefonica operates). Too heavy weight of trade unions lacking flexibility, innovation, projection planning and profesionalism in general.

The Peter Principle is usually accomplished in a classic hierarchically structured company like Telefonica. As someone said: "Getting anything done around here is like mating elephants: 1it's done at high level; 2 it's accomplished with a great deal of roaring and screaming; 3 it takes two years to get results.

Advice to Management

Specially to the highest level: Telefonica is not a monopoly any more. Did you know?

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very people focused, they genuinely care about the people who work there, a lot is expected but if you deliver the rewards are there. Good management, great understanding of their market

    Cons

    I've worked here a long time with very little downside, the bearing of Telefonica Spain has become quire heavy due to the state of spain of late and there is no money to do anything but thats a global siuation


  2. "Positive experience for short term contract"
