    Pros

    Good benefits, car, health & excellent pension.
    Fun and friendly place to work.
    Spacious, modern office.
    There is a gym at the office.

    Slough!!!
    Re-orgs & redundancies are fairly common, but to be fair this is the case at all mobile network operators.
    The hierarchy is less flat than other organisations that i have worked in.
    Some of the internal intranet tools are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on cost-cutting and invest more cash into new products and future revenue generation.

    Interesting job, I really liked the tasks I have to do
