    I worked at Portugal Telecom full-time

    Pros

    Very big company, there is the possibility to work on many projects with a completely different focus. There are some very competent technical people and for the major part management is very understanding of work / personal life balance

    Cons

    In some departments is easy to get stuck without promotions or raises. The company stopped investing or decrease the investment in training employees.

    Advice to Management

    Generally speaking Upper Management (Directors and C levels) should make an effort to listen more the feedback from bottom level employees, that are more closed to the business areas and business clients. Also restart training and certification for tech people

    Underpaid, work environment is awful, they ask you to work extra days and say they’ll pay but they don’t, very disorganised and project coordinators yell at their employees.
