    As like most big corporations, it may not be easy to progress in the hierarchy.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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