    I have been working at Portugal Telecom

    Pros

    Included in a very solid economic group. Competitive starting benefits package. Many departments where various types of skills are usefull.

    Cons

    Work hours required are not consistent with career progression. Career progression is increadibly slow and the benefits for someone working there for more than 3 years are definitly not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on a career path with clear and objective goals where employees know how to progress. Have a long term vision for the company that doesn't change every 2 years.

    I have been working at Portugal Telecom

    Pros

    "Steady Job" - If you want a job that allows you to live in a quiet place by the sea it may be a good choice
    Some of the work is engaging and interesting, but only in hardware or software development.

    Cons

    Low Pay when compared to other similar companies
    Small Town company, not multi-cultural and centered around the main office
    Management promoted from within and not very open to new ideas
    Work-Life balance is an issue in software development, installation and support - other areas are ok

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Managers from outside the company, it need's fresh ideas.
    Fire people occasionally if they don't meet their goals.
    Be more open to fresh ideas.
