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?

    A great place to get experience but plan your exit strategy the day you sign your Cypress based contract!

    Pros

    Get the global experience and job scope that you may not get in a more traditional organization.

    Cons

    Expect no respect for work life balance and a low trust environment where people are viewed as an expendable resource.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk - consider revising the infamous "Golden Rules" which are a laughing point amongst a majority of the people in the company. The humor is that while the Senior Management espouses the values in the MIC Golden Rules their actions and words are inconsistent with those values. Perhaps the fact that the Golden Rules are hanging in the toilet at the Stenbeck farm in Luxembourg is telling.
