    Pros

    I go to office at 8 and my work is done by 5.30. Hence I have ample of time for my professional studies and family.
    Kudos to Grameenphone for providing health insurance for my parents. Now that's one of a kind benefit. I believe in the leadership of Grameenphone as in I can say my company is in good hands.

    Cons

    A huge workforce which can be streamlined very easily and people are not aware of taking cost efficient decisions.

    Advice to Management

    When you are recruiting talents you need to provide them with a definite career path with appropriate development opportunities. And a large workforce may not be a successful one.

    I worked at GrameenPhone as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GP is a recognised company, has great office space, good facilities for employees(like lunch and pick up and drop off).

    Cons

    GP offers no payment for interns, work is tedious and monotonous, and often unrelated to field of study(especially for those in the technology department).

    Advice to Management

    offer better learning opportunities for interns.

  10. Mixed Experience. Most of the people working there are really helpful, but the management is terrible.
