Pros

Great people working in a fast moving environment. Hard work will often receive real recognition and there appears to be real

Cons

People have been treated poorly in recent years and there is a disconnect between what is being said at the top versus the actual treatment of people on the ground. Many mangers only want to hear 'good news' and dismiss other viewpoints as being either disruptive or cynical. Morale is some sections is at rock bottom. Despite having all the skills 'in house', problems are not confronted head on rather they are removed, outsourced or restructured - this is quite simply a failure to 'manage'.

Advice to Management

Use the huge expertise that resides within the company and really MANAGE instead of moving problems (and people) elsewhere.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Pride in the company, brand of the company (it's well known), discounts and priority tickets for the O2.

    Cons

    Career progression is very limited, promotion for people internally doesn't happen enough and when it does, pay increases are limited to 5%

    Advice to Management

    Trust your existing people more

    Pros

    Its a good place to have jos stability, they have a no firing policy that gives the people qorking there a sensation of security. If you are working for any of the branches like TID or Telefonica DATA, the mother company always serves as a backup when it comes to resources.

    Cons

    Very burocratic place. Many of the people working for this company are coming form the times when telefonica was a goverment enterprise, this creates a bit of lacking when it comes to the resources in the company, many of these old employes do not try to grow with the current business needs in the telecom sector.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency when it comes to job postings and senior desitions.
