Talent overflow

Web Developer (Former Employee)
Lisbon (Portugal)

I worked at Portugal Telecom full-time for more than a year

ProsIt's overflowing with talent, so it is a great place to learn. Casual environment and good feel all round.

ConsFor the same reason, because it's overflowing with talent you must be on the top 5% to be able to survive. Most teams have different project management procedures. Some don't have project management at all. Oversourced resources are the most part of the fabric yet they don't move forward inside the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove project management skills and processes. Rely on each real talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
