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

Pros

• There huge amount of benefits for employees;
• The visibility of your work is great because everybody knows the company and you can achieve millions with your work;
• Work have a good flow and projects are clear and well defined (at least in my team);
• Use and adapt a lot of methodologies of work (Scrum, XP, TDD) and have well defined pipelines;
• Telefónica sponsors a lot of events , conventions and courses, of course employees have an easier access to them;
• A lot of collaboration of co-works, besides the numbers of the company works in small teams so there is good communication but information travel slow;
• A lot of changes the company is always moving and re-organizing itself.

Cons

• The information travels slow because the distance (specially with spain) and some projects can be delayed for months;
• It's too easy to be forget here, too many thing happening so if your don't improve and show yourself you will be stuck where you are;
• Bosses and directors changes a lot so is easy to loose focus for a while;
• Sometimes your project can just disappear and you loose all your work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

• Get more involved with day-by-day operations to understand which can lead to better task organization and prioritization;
• Tech leaders should be more 360º professionals.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Possibility of working abroad for 6 months
    Benefits

    Cons

    Management
    There are too many changes during the year so it´s really hard to have a delivery.
    It´s too burocratic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don´t just look at the deliveries of the junior managers, also look at the happiness of their employees. The turn over is too high on my area.

    Pros

    You get protection. Safety. And are regularly paid.

    Cons

    Its difficult to see how you contribute to improve your company. And its difficult to progress in your professional development. Its difficult to maintain the illusion to go work after some years doing always the same
