    They give you the opportunity to begin adding to your background. The spanish language.

    They should consider to raise your salary when you demonstrate what you are worth and when you have gained some years of experience with them, in order to mantain a stable staff.

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

    I don't have anything relevant to talk about. The only thing that disgust me is that I float in many projects that's makes me confused in some times.

    Nothing to consider.
