    I have been working at Millicom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great new office, multicultural enviroment, nice colleagues, good reporting structure with a flat structure feel, exciting projects, career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Office is new, so slightly chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with your plans to focus on local operations, as you have already seen, a lot of attention is needed there for us to be competitive. There needs to be more collaboration between HQ and local operations as well as more integration with all functions...

    Some Senior Mgnt has their thinking wrong, it's "Growth DESPITE of us & not BECAUSE of us"!!!

    I worked at Millicom

    Pros

    flat hierarchy, lack of good staff creates opportunities, self-initiative is key at all levels, some motivated staff at country-level, Emerging Markets work for sure more dynamic than "old world"

    Cons

    2009 restructuring created uncertainties and frustration, lack of long-term thinking i.e. increased HQ in Luxembourg in 2008, 2009 new CEO and now regional offices in Miami & Dubai and smaller HQ in Luxembourg

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop fooling around and start executing, e.g. mobile payment service: discussed for last 3 years, the outcome so far: one pilot in South America - where is your commitment to VAS as the growth driver?
