A good place to gain experience and move on elsewhere

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Portugal Telecom

ProsIncluded in a very solid economic group. Competitive starting benefits package. Many departments where various types of skills are usefull.

ConsWork hours required are not consistent with career progression. Career progression is increadibly slow and the benefits for someone working there for more than 3 years are definitly not competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on a career path with clear and objective goals where employees know how to progress. Have a long term vision for the company that doesn't change every 2 years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not good, can't wait to leave.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Portugal Telecom

Pros"Steady Job" - If you want a job that allows you to live in a quiet place by the sea it may be a good choice
Some of the work is engaging and interesting, but only in hardware or software development.

ConsLow Pay when compared to other similar companies
Small Town company, not multi-cultural and centered around the main office
Management promoted from within and not very open to new ideas
Work-Life balance is an issue in software development, installation and support - other areas are ok

Advice to Senior ManagementHire Managers from outside the company, it need's fresh ideas.
Fire people occasionally if they don't meet their goals.
Be more open to fresh ideas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
