    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (less than a year)


    Work life balance. Working with most exciting customers in the IT industry. Great perks, pay and bonuses


    Very disorganised but a little like a startup in some ways. Sometimes projects are left to last minute and everyone panics working into the early hours but that's not very often. It's the worst internal IT environment known to mankind. Archaic policies and practices coupled with archaic technology means communication is difficult (ironically).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ more people and invest more into IT

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Telefónica.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with HR. Pretty basic questions, mostly about experience, pros and cons about myself.
    Then I had another phone interview with the supervisor of the position, it wasn't technical either, though we discussed my experience with different technologies to make sure I could be a fit.
    Finally had an onsite interview with the same supervisor and one of the heads of the lab, this one was a 45 minute technical interview and a "soft skills" interview.
