    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovation areas get to try out ideas with new and exciting technology, the people are good, some are exceptional especially in wed dev, creative tech and innovation. If you can deliver the work, flexible work life balance is second to none.

    Cons

    A dislocation from the reality of the market, and no real answer to the question of what happens to telcos in a digital future (Hint, you are a dumb pipe). Closing down of the Digital subsidiary not exactly an inspired move - chaos reigns. Any energy or enthusiasm has been wiped out, and pay levels that were below market rate might be acceptable when excitement is flowing - not so now. No real career progression available, and upper management is 99% male, white and predominately Spanish.

    Advice to Management

    Top level strategy is unclear, vacuous communication from leaders. Lower level strategy and day to day tactics either non-existent or poorly communicated - honestly, I couldn't tell which. This company has no real vision, chooses to hide behind jargon and management bs.
