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

    Pros

    Down to earth team, good contract benefits for staff, decent pay for retail full time advisors.

    Cons

    Guru's do the job of an advisor and a manager but only earn £100 more than a full time advisor which is not motivating. Work life balance is not so great as we work long weekends. O2 does not run on commission but we still get punished for not hitting individual targets. Instore staff need more access to things that Customer service do.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate about the work load you give to Guru's for what they earn.
