    Pros

    The big amount of technological matters which you can be involved in. The innovation, the size of the company and the resources which you can acces.

    Cons

    This is improving but you can deal with people who comes from the old Telefónica "culture", when Telefónica was a Public Company...

    Advice to Management

    We need to transform the company much faster than we are doing right now. There is a lot of internal talent that deserves to be exploited and they aren't in the right position and bet on profiles that right now are not in the company
