    I have been working at Telecom Italia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experience and opportunity if you enter the right group, but low chances to drive your personal future if not for relations

    Cons

    Too many head quarter changes during last years, no strategic planning and future uncertain.

    Advice to Management

    better high positions than middle management.

    I have been working at Telecom Italia part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good environment, friendly, still good benefit (for the moment), no other pros to be written

    Cons

    Very low salary, no meritocracy, no gratification, unfair holiday planning, overwhelming work, with ridicolous plan for turnover: backoffice still works during the weekends and national holidays, completely useless

    Advice to Management

    Give more importance to employees, give us back CEO's stolen money and stop with outsource threat: less talk, more action!

    Former Contractor - Digital Marketing Manager in Milan (Italy)

    I worked at Telecom Italia as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A big company with a great variety of opportunities because of employees diversity and market dominance. The company offers networking connections with almost every big player in the market. Rather peaceful environment for day-by-day tasks.

    Cons

    Poor management of opportunities and conservative mentality. Because of that the working forces may be led to time consuming and useless misunderstandings and feuds, especially when in shortage of resources. It may eventually cause the overall failure of affected projects.

    Advice to Management

    Support different ideas and lean more on the experimental attitude. Contrast hierarchical behaviour on any possible occasion. Ease the decisional making process by considering strategies suggested by the base along with those made up by the top (often derived from powerpoint documents only)

    Pros

    There are a lot of benefits you can rely on

    Cons

    Salary is very low, consultants are more important than employers, if they take as a developer, you will not ever write code, the mails are more valuable and important than working, a lot of employees thinks they are like Gods but effectively they are good for nothing. They don't care if you work, the important is that you stay at your place even if you are web-surfing

    Advice to Management

    Use more your inner factory and not take consultants for everything, give value to the inner potential.

    I have been working at Telecom Italia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many new technologies and partners to deal with. A lot of parallel projects to follow. As a young professional, you have the possibility to rapidly increase your skills.

    Cons

    The company is dealing with a strong crysis, and this is reducing employee's salaries and benefits. Work is poorly organised and planned. The average age is very high, and this is a problem when you deal with a lot of new technologies.

    Pros

    it's somehow an innovative company, it is a big environment so offerts lots of things to learn, it shapes your character

    Cons

    there are not many opportunities for high potential professionals, and higher management positions are often precluded to those starting from the base

    Advice to Management

    they should better recognize talent and create a real meritocratic environment. I have met top managers who showed real attention to resources, while middle management is often not highly qualified
