    Pros

    Solid company, well organized, well structured, respectful environment to work, you will learn a lot, good place to learn about telecommunications both wired and mobile.

    Cons

    You will not be hired with the bigest salary in the market, due to the fact that for the company, the experience that you will win and the value to work there outweights the salary

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared for a little bit of policy and burocracy. The Union there is a big challenge in this company, since they could hurdle your job if a salary protest would arise.

    Pros

    My job was with a new business unit, created by a mix of companies in that sector that were bought and new hires. I was one of the new hires.

    It was an exciting proyect because you have half (or full) country to provide service.
    Never had issues with HR.
    Salaries were slightly over the industry median, and it was a "forward looking area". Other areas always complained of low salaries

    Cons

    Company culture is complicated, as there are several "tectonic layers" (the old, state-owned telco, the new management with sprinkles of european administration, each company that was integrated, etc.)

    You never get to know any strategic plans, which means that each change in direction is stressful. Very little regard for old-time employees, were the key to many company aspects were deposited.

    The is a large gap in culture, attitude and benefits between workers + mid-level management and top management.

    Advice to Management

    Become aware of human resources that are running the company, providing suscribers with service. .

    Pros

    It´s a company where you can do your job and go home without taking anything with you. Perfect place to put the enphasis in your personal life.

    Cons

    It provides no career development, there are no programms to make its employees grow. The salary policy is not clear. In general, the way to grow inside the structure doesn´t depend on the performance in the job.

    Advice to Management

    I think that it´s imperative to overhoul the human resources policies (salaries, training, opportunities, etc) in order to keep within the company the most talented employees and to incentivate everyone in general.
