    My Experience has been not been a very pleasant one, as innovation has been in the barest minimum.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTime for self study since there is no platform for training.

    ConsThere is no health scheme
    No methodical working plan
    No visibility in the organizations goals and visions.
    Management and employees are on different side of the divide

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to strategically rethink the way business is done in the organization.
    An urgent need for employee engagement.
    There is also a need to redefine processes and procedures.
    Management doesn't have a global view of the organizations operations, the information they get is more of here say.
    Network Management is at all time low, therefore troubleshooting issues is more of guesswork.
    Training should be embarked on as a matter of urgency.
    The Organization should be more agile and flexible to the changing demands of the customer.

    Not financially rewarding, but the experience is worthwhile

    Field Service Engineer (BSS/Transmission) (Current Employee) Lagos (Nigeria)

    ProsCareer opportunity, Good exposure to Multi-vendor equipment

    ConsNo growth Structure, little or no training on entry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI suggest the introduction of a solid administrative structure that supports growth and reward for good service and contribution. I also recommend that staff welfare should be a top priority, and is key to the continues growth of the company (Majority of the staff are depressed). Adoption of good maintenance measure is also necessary to save cost, and control the degradation of the companies valuable asset and facilities.

    Good technology but bad management

    Customer Care Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsRelaxed working environment. Good salary compared to other Telecommunications firms in Nigeria. Good brand to be associated with. Work was pretty flexible.

    ConsMany of the people in management positions are simply arrogant monsters. Many of them are not there on merit and hence are not competent enough for such positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove discrimination and make the company truly world class. Make the pay structure more standardized. Try to find out why many of your skilled staff leave disgruntled. Lead by example in terms of behaviour. Many of the management staff do not act professionally at all. They talk to their subordinates in a patronizing manner.
