Excellent company to start working at

IT Consultant (Current Employee)
Lisbon (Portugal)

I have been working at Portugal Telecom as an intern for less than a year

ProsSpecific program (PT Trainees) for recruiting of raw university talent, independently of course.
Great integration for new people based on periodic side activities over the first two years which are part of the program.

ConsMilleage may vary at such a large company, there are many different people and job types which make each person's experience unique and not necessarily what one would expect after being accepted.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the company's focus on expanding its business model internationally even more, as Portugal is a very small market for all the big ideas that are being developed.

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

To much outsourcing

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Lisbon (Portugal)

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


Pros: You learn enterprise size methodologies there. The company lunch area… Cons: They don't have good work life balance and the outsourcing is terrible, seen people there that are outsourced… Advice to Senior Management: the outsourcing is not really saving any money, offer those workers half of what you pay to the outsourcing companies and the "real" workers will… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
