I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There was a lot of autonomy in the Content department, as long as you were creating traffic and/or money.

Cons

Board management who didn't have a clue about content, social networks, or non-voice data.
People pushing wasteful initiatives to advance their careers, at a cost of millions to the company.

Advice to Management

Learn to trust successful people and let them get on with their job, even if you don't understand what they do.
