    I have been working at Telefónica as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large Top 500 company and 6th largest Telco in the world. You will work on very high profile clients and projects.

    Cons

    Being so a large company, it tends to move too slow

    Advice to Management

    Let local people manage key positions, rather than importing personnel from Spain that does not know the market

    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

    Very challenging environment culturally and bureaucratically to get things done. There are numerous decision makers for all expenses and opaque processes to sort through to develop products. Face to face communication is essential to moving the needle.
