No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible working is a real pro to Tef, but in fairness if they didn't have it you wouldn't get a desk and certainly not a parking space at the HQ. The culture is good as are in general the people i have worked with. The overall package is pretty good, but they are not the highest payers.

Cons

Seemingly inept senior leadership that have been in post too long do not appear to have a firm grasp on the future of the company. They appear very nepotistic in appointment of senior roles, do not embrace change or innovation and ultimately seem powerless to steer the company in a clear and focussed path. Middle management are un-empowered and generally spineless to the disarray above. Under/Mis-investment and central Tef milking of the cash cow that was O2 is now revealing cracks in the company.

Advice to Management

Arguably some more change at the top is needed, in all my career I have never seen such a fixed board. Whilst constant change is bad, likewise is stagnation. New ideas and initiative is needed top down.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool Brand, Great Offices, Very Flexible, Benefits are good, Pension is good.

    Cons

    Mismatched / Huge targets not representing assigned accounts
    Pay is average.
    Commission structure includes a 15% Client Sat score, if your part of the company does not hit it, you don't get it. (almost a tax)
    Not a sales culture
    If you don't speak Spanish forget any real high level progression
    Held back by crazy decision from
    The Whole TEF Digital brand is/was Vaporware

    Advice to Management

    Get some people that are from outside the company to transform things, stop putting mobile minded people in senior positions.
