Pros
  • Good Work/Life Balance and Compensation & Benefits (in 51 reviews)

  • It also encouraged flexible working in which employees could work from home or anywhere really without having to come to the office (in 46 reviews)

Cons
  • Some of the disadvantages are: senior management is not always available, sometimes there is a feel of a barrier between seniors and regular employees (in 18 reviews)

  • Sometimes as it is a big Company you need to involve quite a few people to progress with a project (in 15 reviews)

    Pros

    Very friendly people, committed to work as a team. A lot of extraordinary activities and benefits.

    Cons

    Well paid for first jobs. You need to leave after a few years if you really want a significant increase in income

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Top modernes Open-Office-Konzept und trotzdem diverse Rückzugsmöglichkeiten. Duz-Kultur über alle Hierarchie-Ebenen hinweg. Dynamisches Unternehmen. Viele vertragliche Zusatzleistungen. Gute Anbindung mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln und Nähe zum Olympia-Einlaufszentrum. In den oberen Stockwerken hat man wohl die beste Aussicht Münchens.

    Cons

    Man muss Open-Office mögen bzw. sich daran gewöhnen. Offizielle Mitarbeiter-Events wurden in den letzten Jahren deutlich reduziert bzw. fanden kaum noch statt.

    Advice to Management

    Im Rahmen des Zusammenschlusses mit E-Plus für ein stabiles Betriebsklima sorgen damit eine neue gemeinsame Unternehmenskultur entstehen kann, die wieder von Begeisterung lebt.

    I worked at Telefónica full-time

    Pros

    Very strong company to work for with great culture and talented people. Training excellent and no surprise that so many alumni have gone on to great things.

    Cons

    Very little in terms of cons but fair to say when the company was bought by Three there was a completely different culture and a real inability to manage and communicate from the top, to staff and customers.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and lots of work to do and things to learn and improve

    Cons

    Structure a bit chaotic and it changes very quickly. Too big and inside politics and friendships count a too much.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Vision, different business lines to work in, innovation capabilities, highly skilled team, fair salaries (including health insurance, retirement funds...)

    Cons

    Difficulties in being promoted due to the big amount of employees and most of it executives. There is not a clear professional career.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency and confidence in middle management

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It has to be the people if you're lucky enough to get a store where everyone supports each other each day is a pleasure. I've made life long friends and I looked forward to every day. No matter how hard things became you had people to guide you and help you.

    Cons

    If you work for a franchise you are paid less, you have more pressure and things can change very quickly. If you work for the retail non franchise you have better conditions of work. The prices are not competitive compared to other similar companies and they need to get rid of add ones and focus on the core product.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same, don't have favourites and give more time for the reps from phone companies to show us features and benefits of the handsets we sell.

    I worked at Telefónica as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freundliche Kollegen, Top Vorgesetztenverhalten, sehr angenehme Arbeitsatmosphäre, flexible Zeiteinteilung, gratis Kaffee und Wasser.
    Ich würde sehr gerne Vollzeit bei Telefonica arbeiten.

    Cons

    Der Stundensatz könnte höher sein. Schulung zum Thema Mobilfunk (Technik) wäre wünschenswert. PC's relativ alt, Windows 8, kleine Bildschirme.

    Advice to Management

    Mehr der Internen Stellen auch Extern ausschreiben oder auch befristeten Mitarbeitern (Werkstudenten) die Möglichkeit geben sich auf diese Stellen zu bewerben.
