    I worked at Portugal Telecom (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Portugal Telecom (Altice Labs) was a great experience, because it is one of the largest companies in Portugal, and you get to learn a lot from very bright people.

    Perhaps now one of the worst things about working here might be the fact of the company letting go a lot of people, due to the purchase by Altice Labs, so there's a lot of insecurity,
