    Pros

    Easy work that requires a lot more skills keeping everybody happy than doing actual engineering work. Fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    Work estimates often way beyond what was really required. Contractors often treated badly compared to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Direct managers did as good a job as they could. Leadership should be aware that if there is not a lot to deliver people will start playing politics instead of doing work.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, with great in-house talent! European management style with Spanish language as its core communication & methods. Aggressive sales goals with capped income possibilities for sales people.

    Telefonica is an amazing environment for people that are willing to roll up their sleeves and work very hard! Great benefits package which includes vacation, medical, dental, short and long term disability for employees (paid by company).

    Cons

    A perfect company does not exist. But maybe internal outdated legacy processes that are used today at Telefonica, mostly handicap employee's productivity.

    Consider that your daily responsibilities will carry a burden of approximately 50% load, and this is due to legacy processes to do simple tasks. This is purely administrative load due to outdated internal systems.

    Advice to Management

    Improvement on legacy manual processes (i.e. SIGMA) to more modern integrated solutions for sales, pre-sales and post sales will help paid employees be more productive.

    HR at an executive level, can maybe be more engaging.
