    Invest in your employees and listen to them. Don't just fixate on stock prices and making the company look good 'on paper'.

    I have been working at Telefónica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tesco Mobile, a JV between Telefonica and Tesco, offers a great work atmosphere. It's relative small but you have the great benefits of two massive companies. . Everyone gets on and work in a very collaborative. It's very customer-centric. Everyone genuinely wants to do what's best for the customer (that's why Tesco Mobile is the No 1 Telco for customer service).

    Cons

    Might not be the place for people who liked to work in very established way. A lot processes need to be defined. If you're a Tesco employee, you might be more exposed when it comes to reorganisations (Tesco seems to do one every year). Telefonica employees seem more protected.
    It's a very flat as organisation and employees tend to like it and stay for long, you may need to move to either Telefonica or Tesco to progress in your career.
