Not a good place to unleash your full creativity.

I have been working at Portugal Telecom

ProsSafe job; Perks like health insurance, telecommunications products discounts, etc; Lots of people using the products you gonna help design and develop.

ConsLow wages; incompetent management; corporate environment; many internal divisions with the different commercial brands (SAPO, MEO, TMN), which hinders your work; lots of focus on charging the customer instead of creating great products; cultural division of employees by their rank and job skills;

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more organized; think ahead of time; don't always make last minute decisions; give more autonomy to your team members; stay focused instead of trying to create too many products; give real and honest feedback to the team; give importance to continuous assessment of workers job, not only at yearly evaluation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
