I worked at Portugal Telecom full-time for more than a year

Pros

You learn enterprise size methodologies there. The company lunch area is reasonable although it could have more variety.

Cons

They don't have good work life balance and the outsourcing is terrible, seen people there that are outsourced by as much as four companies before being deploy in their work post, a victory for the middle men.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

the outsourcing is not really saving any money, offer those workers half of what you pay to the outsourcing companies and the "real" workers will be be very happy with the 50% raise and a stable job. I simply quit and moved on to a better work because these critical points would not be meet even if I was very good at my work.

    Pros

    Excellent place to learn and get experience, great work environment.

    Cons

    Compensation should be one tool for administrators to drive workers performance and motivation. But unfortunately that is not the PT way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please reward intelligently

    I have been working at Portugal Telecom as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team.... excellent vibe inside the company, the spirit of progress is in, in the short time I was in the company they gave several workshops for the employees

    Cons

    Long hours as an Engineer, still the ambiance is good enough so you don't realize the amount of time you spent in there.
