    Former Employee - Software Developer in Mégaron (Greece)

    I worked at Hellenic Telecommunications (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary payments were on time. Most greek employees value that as highly important during this period of Greek crisis.

    Cons

    Totally unorganized development process. Bad equipment(from chairs to computers). Outdated development processes and frameworks. Many legacy systems. No source control system. In my department, Operating Support Systems, which was one of the most critical departments it was constantly understaffed resulting in constant pressure. The difficulty of training new people lies on the complete lack of documentation and the (frequently unnecessary) complexity of systems inter-relation. Impossible deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Should value more the IT personnel as the skilled and hard-working professionals they are. Also, need to enforce a different software development approach (Git, JAX-RS instead of JAX-WS, Agile methodology instead of Waterfall).
