Very good

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Telefónica

ProsPlenty of earning opportunity and was able to progress to assistant branch manager within eighteen months. Very supportive team too.

ConsFaceless organisation where if you work in the extremities then you don't get a look-in from senior management. Before I left they started to squeeze rewards structure and their mystery shopping should never have been the decider on whether a bonus is paid or not. It put too much pressure on staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview staff rewards and client feedback models.

Very good company to work for

Strategy Consultant (Former Employee)
Munich (Germany)

I worked at Telefónica as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe firm offer very good opportunities to learn with freedom within boundaries. Employees enjoy good social environment and are with lots of energy and passion for work.

ConsThe hardest thing for every firm is not only to set up the right corporate mission and vision, but to align those to the people, and furthermore, to make all employees to start believing in their firm’s value and mission. This is not so well elaborated internally, therefore external picture is respectively adequate to the internal one.
