Great to start working at

IT Consultant (Current Employee)
Lisbon (Portugal)

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

ProsLots 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementWork hard to make the merger with Oi a complete success for both sides!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent company to start working at

IT Consultant (Current Employee)
Lisbon (Portugal)

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

ProsSpecific 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.

ConsMilleage 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 Senior ManagementIncrease 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

ProsGreat 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

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