    Pros

    Stable but not perspective for professional development and growth, inefficient system of personnel motivation. To get your salary in time. But violations of the law regarding overtime and work on weekends.

    Cons

    It was very interesting to work here at start-up period, but operating conditions were worsen. There is no long-term development strategy. Revision of wages was seven years ago, terminated employees professional development program of regions five years ago.

    Advice to Management

    More think about company's prospects and development, not only about reduction of expenses.

    Pros

    Good working conditions. Beautiful offices. Solid corporate culture. Interesting tasks. Transparent goals. Social benefits. Mostly good and smart people work in company. Career ladder opportuinites appear quite often in different branches. Innovations usually are welcome.

    Cons

    Regular big company problems. Quite incompetent HQ management really annoys sometimes. Sometimes people forget what they are doing here, their direct responsibilities. Classical blind Russian management in action. The only thing you have to do is just present pretty charts and tell people what they want you to tell. That's the secret of success.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to people skills level.

    Pros

    Great brand, team spirit, corporate culture. Benefits used to be attractive. Most progressive operator among Big3 of mobile operators in Russia in terms of processes, strategy and business vision.

    Cons

    A lot of changes happening now with many people leaving. Corporate culture is very different from region to region - can be very tough in some of them. HQ looks like the best option.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the best from the past (people, values) and inspire team with ambitious goals and clear perspectives.
