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

    Pros

    Leader in Latin America. Good work environment. Growing customer base in the US leveraged by strong relationships in Latin America.

    Cons

    Desorganized. Confusing processes. Spanish leadership in the US are very arrogant and they do not understand the North American market. No career advancement in the US (unless you know somebody in Spain). Sales salaries are way below market average and comission plan was built to make sure you will never make money. Be content with your fixed salary or leave.

    Pros

    Flexibility such as work from home, work schedule and vacation scheme is good. Bonus and benefits weigh in as well. Technical freedom is welcome too.

    Cons

    Way too many managers and some tend to be afraid of change. It is quite difficult to step up on your career.
