    Pros

    The only benefit is that the largest "buyer" of IT services in Greece and you have the oportunity to coloborate with the largest IT services providers. Olny for your CV

    Cons

    If you wanna proffesionall advacement to this company need to be part of "choosen one cirlce" of the managers. People without any knowledge take positions with only qualification the "connections" with upper management and the ability to be puppets of them.

    Advice to Management

    Review the policies of HR management and don't hide the problems under the carpet for long time. Soon or later the past decade management policy will fail and lot of people will not be there to support you.


  3. negtive expeience due to the fact that I joint COSMOTE based on the contractual agreement with Germanos S.A.

    Pros

    Good paycheck Flexibility regarding time Cheap mobile subscriptions (very good)

    Cons

    - Super chaos regarding customer orders. We have a list with available phones or tablets in deposit wich 'upgrades' every month; it is immensely rare to synocrinze to deliver to the customer either in time (up to 30 days sometimes) or at all (i.e. the cusomter orders something from the list then they will very often find out that the phone is available in fact) - Huge bureaucracy (b2b contracts have way to many pages) - Poorly skilled labor in b2b sales (sometimes it looks like they hires anybody) - Superiors say they are willing to help but when you actually need them (and it's in their job responsibilities) no response whatsoever. - Relations with the customers (sometimes you wait even 30 minutes till somebody answers at 1212) - In order to find new clients, employees call from a certain database; however, firms (more than 60%) are constantly complaining that they are bothered with calls every week from a different Cosmote salesperson and they are literally begging us to create a common database. - Deaf superiors - Superficiality in dealing with employees, customers, etc.

    Advice to Management

    I am very sorry for the harsh review but I strongly believe that Cosmote has a good start to actually resolve most problems together with the new brand, T.
