I worked at Portugal Telecom full-time

Pros

Large Organization, good for technical jobs

Cons

Large Organization, fair for management jobs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The ones that stay at the company are probably the ones that should have gone out ... Most of them have personnal agendas that really harm company's owners interests and dispite of that they tend to be promoted ...

    I worked at Portugal Telecom as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of projects to be involved with and a good working environment, state of the art equipment and plentiful opportunities to learn new technologies
    Management is somewhat easygoing, at least in the group I was working, altough they were also very aware of the deadlines, so do not expect any kind of slackers!

    Cons

    Somewhat difficult to get the message trough tough, paperwork could be rearranged to get the most out of your work without getting in the way
    Overtime work was not valued as I think it should be, but when it was deemed necessary I never had any problem with it.

    I worked at Portugal Telecom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's overflowing with talent, so it is a great place to learn. Casual environment and good feel all round.

    Cons

    For the same reason, because it's overflowing with talent you must be on the top 5% to be able to survive. Most teams have different project management procedures. Some don't have project management at all. Oversourced resources are the most part of the fabric yet they don't move forward inside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve project management skills and processes. Rely on each real talent.
