Pros
  • The work/life balance was the best from all places I've worked in (in 53 reviews)

  • It also encouraged flexible working in which employees could work from home or anywhere really without having to come to the office (in 47 reviews)

Cons
  • Some of the disadvantages are: senior management is not always available, sometimes there is a feel of a barrier between seniors and regular employees (in 18 reviews)

  • Sometimes as it is a big Company you need to involve quite a few people to progress with a project (in 15 reviews)

    I have been working at Telefónica (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is growing in the US, and it is backed by a huge multinational group. It is quite safe in the sense that once you are hired you become part of the team and they will not fire you

    Cons

    the group in the US focused in multinational customers is poorly managed and it is a very difficult market, which puts too much stress on people

    Advice to Management

    Restructure in order to keep talent

    Pros

    This is a very good please to start a career in the Computer's Network world. You will learn a lot of things an procedures regarding WAN operation.

    Cons

    The main problem that Telefonica has is that grow within the company is very difficult, the pay is not as good as should be neither the benefits for the one that starts through a Contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Once they notice that they have in your hands people highly qualified receiving low compensation for their positions, the flow of persons leaving the company will decrease.
