I have been working at Portugal Telecom

Pros

Safe job; Perks like health insurance, telecommunications products discounts, etc; Lots of people using the products you gonna help design and develop.

Cons

Low wages; incompetent management; corporate environment; many internal divisions with the different commercial brands (SAPO, MEO, TMN), which hinders your work; lots of focus on charging the customer instead of creating great products; cultural division of employees by their rank and job skills;

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more organized; think ahead of time; don't always make last minute decisions; give more autonomy to your team members; stay focused instead of trying to create too many products; give real and honest feedback to the team; give importance to continuous assessment of workers job, not only at yearly evaluation.

    I have been working at Portugal Telecom

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Work 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 ManagementAdvice

    Work 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.
