Pros

Great place to work in terms of career advancement, IT opportunities and a leading company in the Telecom world. Also great environment to develop entrepreneurial spirit and to develope new technologies in the Telecom market.

Cons

Very hierchical and non result driven in some areas. Can be very difficult to drive change in some of the projects and there is a lot of political issues going on.

Maintaining work-life balance is definitely a challenge with the travel schedule. The firm is working to address this but some of it is inherent in the on-site client service model, whch does bring many benefits

Advice to Management

Improve the internazionalization of the company.

Look for opportunities to leverage the franchise you have built to expand into other lines of business such as direct investing and incubating start-ups.

    Pros

    Great people working in a fast moving environment. Hard work will often receive real recognition and there appears to be real

    Cons

    People have been treated poorly in recent years and there is a disconnect between what is being said at the top versus the actual treatment of people on the ground. Many mangers only want to hear 'good news' and dismiss other viewpoints as being either disruptive or cynical. Morale is some sections is at rock bottom. Despite having all the skills 'in house', problems are not confronted head on rather they are removed, outsourced or restructured - this is quite simply a failure to 'manage'.

    Advice to Management

    Use the huge expertise that resides within the company and really MANAGE instead of moving problems (and people) elsewhere.

    Pros

    Pride in the company, brand of the company (it's well known), discounts and priority tickets for the O2.

    Cons

    Career progression is very limited, promotion for people internally doesn't happen enough and when it does, pay increases are limited to 5%

    Advice to Management

    Trust your existing people more
