Current Employee - Software Engineer  in  São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)
Current Employee - Software Engineer in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

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.

    Pros

    Great culture, market leader, good benefits, largely a successful business model. Global view and reach coming in to play with increasing influence of Telefonica in Spain

    Cons

    Recent globalisation with Telefonica bringing a lot of complexity, innefficiency, and pain during transformation. May be seen as UK is dropping to standards of the centre - although a lot of the luxuries afforded to O2 UK are now not available in today's economic climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going, remember values.
