    I worked at Telefónica (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Big corporation with stablished processes and practices.
    - Presence in many countries and a market leader in some of these countries.

    Cons

    - Bureaucracy, internal politics and in some cases is terribly old fashioned.
    - Very difficult to promote internal change and there is little interest in helping others.
    - Meritocracy is not a reality in this corporation.
    - 15 years under a catastrophic Top Management regime.

    Be sure that a positive culture is planted in the Company and that this new culture is promoted by all the leaders, particularly by the top leaders in Telefonica.

    Pros

    It is a good place to construct a solid kwoledge basis. There are people who have deep knowledge about specific technical areas.

    Cons

    Leadership changes often result in changes on planned network investments and strategy. There is a generation of bad managers and directors, that do not fight for their employees or the best solutions or estrategies, although there are some exceptions. Employees are often affraid to fight against loss of benefits. Overall, a company that often do not engage their people to deliver the best of their potencial.

    Advice to Management

    Do not just accept nonsense recommendations or impositions. Your employees are the best part of the company.
