    Former Employee - National Sales Manager in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - National Sales Manager in London, England (UK)

    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.

    Current Employee - Business Sales
    Current Employee - Business Sales

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time

    Pros

    1) Flexible working
    2) Wider o2 consumer business has great brand
    3) Thing big initiative is a real contributor to the community

    Cons

    1) draconian senior leadership in business is not up to the job of changing business direction - vote of no confidence
    2) Restructure after restructure with bipolar strategy
    3) Cultural habit of blaming people rather than fixing more difficult wider issues of capability, expertise and internal process
    4) Do not pay sales people fairly for business won
    5) unrealistic expectations of sales, specialists and technical teams with no acknowledgement of challenges or commitment to fix.
    6) excessive workloads and hours due to lack of investment in expertise, resource, process and systems.
    7) no talent development program for people in business division

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managing upwards will not drive a successful business or high performance team. Senior leadership targets different to staff lower down the tree. Fear culture drives good people to leave hence the large loss of talent.
