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.

    Transformation impacts employee engagement negatively.
    Attempts to change a locally managed business to a global organization not very successful.
