Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Some very capable and intelligent people, great work-life balance and opportunities for flexible working.

Cons

Unless you are very well connected to senior directors in Spain, opportunities to progress are limited. Constant re-organisations are frustrating, particularly given in some areas there is no appetite for change and no consequences for failure or lack of change. Senior directors essentially sort out their friends above all - there is no due process around giving roles to the most qualified or capable people. Generally there is a big tendency to avoid hard work.

Advice to Management

Speak to people - understand the details and impact at the lower levels before making decisions. Stop rewarding people who don't perform - be brave enough to do things differently.
