    Pros

    Working with a multidisciplinary, cooperative and innovative team into a technology environment where people are frequently asked to be new and to recreate.

    Some development requires you to be more than the half time hands on. Also, since it means an extremely and complex company you should negociating everything with everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a good place to accelerate your career in on of the most exciting areas around the world.

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent insight to technology and a refreshing approach to Telehealth within a global context.

    Cons

    No real understanding of selling in to the NHS and the timescales involved. Also needed to adopt a more academic stance providing evidence of benefit vs risk at a patient level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    return to the UK market when Telehealth is more accepted by the NHS and look for the sales via consumers/end users demand not NHS demand.
