I worked at Portugal Telecom

Pros

Job Security and leading market positions, diversity of protfolio, international presence
Reduced pressure from clients
Recognizable brand
Good work environment with informal relation

Cons

Lack of opportunities for growth due to a mature market, Company politics and alliances and
Career systems based on personnal attributes which makes it harder for an unknown to go through the ranks. lack of integration with international business and lack of visibility of oportunites outside

Advice to ManagementAdvice

10 years without visible investment on human resources is a long time for a company who wants to succeed. When facing such a strong menace like the ones we are living corporations need an environment that promotes change and risk taking, not authoritarian management and cost focus

    Just fine - (regarding an engineering position, other areas such as HR are much more relaxed).

    I worked at Portugal Telecom

    Pros

    The prestige of working on one of the largest companies in Portugal.
    Good for your resume. Salaries are not all that bad.

    Cons

    If you are a worker outside Lisbon, you get treated like a second-rate employee (even if you're in Aveiro).
    Should pay their engineers better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the "Cons" and improve on those.
    PT-Inovação should have a more start-up feel to it, too much micro management.
    A little more credit could be given to the "subcontratados" category.
