    Pros

    Social benefits, vacations and, if your direct manager is reasonable, flexible working.

    Is like an elephant, SLOW. Lot of managers work like in twenty century. Telework is not well seen by many managers. Lot of externalized staff. There's no real way to improve your technical career if you don't have a godfather....

    Advice to Management

    Less rinbombant communications and more effective measures to improve the conditions of the employees and truly modernize the company.

    I have been working at Telefónica part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for O2 as a part time job can only be described as one of the best retail jobs. It is light years ahead of working in a clothes shop.

    Cons

    The only cons are if you aren't motivated to sell phones, 'management will pick up on this, so you need to be prepared to sell. It's not difficult though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, maybe hire some more full time employers so staff aren't so tight working around student availability.
