    I have been working at Portugal Telecom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stable company, strong management, lots of work and projects going at the same time makes it an interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes its hard to change people from old habits because the incumbent, state owned telecom provider still rings a bell to some employees, mostly older ones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the good work, make portugal telecom a market force together with Oi and dont forget of the people that pull all the levers and push all the buttons

    I have been working at Portugal Telecom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of skilled people and many interesting projects, which makes for an exciting workplace and great learning opportunity, especially for new workers. Merger with Brasil based Oi will likely bring new opportunities for career development.

    Cons

    Crisis in Portugal doesn't allow for the best effort / reward combination at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to make the merger with Oi a complete success for both sides!

    Pros

    Great management team, as of December 2012. Good health support services, for both the employee and relatives.

    Cons

    Once Portugal is in financial trouble, career opportunities are not great most companies, and Portugal Telecom is no exception

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

    Pros

    Specific 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.

    Cons

    Milleage 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 ManagementAdvice

    Increase 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.

    Pros

    Great team.... excellent vibe inside the company, the spirit of progress is in, in the short time I was in the company they gave several workshops for the employees

    Cons

    Long hours as an Engineer, still the ambiance is good enough so you don't realize the amount of time you spent in there.
