    Pros

    Culture, people, goal oriented, motivation, work with young people, average age below 25 years old.

    Directors or high management where a lot scaled or pointed by fnger and not by capacity or skills. Many coutries where not aligned with corporate/global strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you can grow in the corporation and show the path. No clear vision in the corporate ladder

    I have been working at Millicom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I like working in this company because the attitude is always positive and people are usually very happy and special .

    Cons

    I do not like because there is little opportunity for growth since they usually grow professionally is because they have affinity with any officer or director .

    Advice to Management

    They must learn to take into account the views of all employees , and if possible to learn to give equal opportunities to all .

    Pros

    Opportunities for personal and professional growth. Very challenging situations. Results oriented, numbers driven teams with practical no-nonsense approach. Quite nimble. Emerging markets focus. Good people.

    Rapid change in work environments. Reluctance (historical) to invest in / bet on Africa operations. Tendency to manage for margins as opposed to invest for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Recent change in management and management philisophy preclude any substantial comment. Communication is key during this transition phase.

    Pros

    Great new office, multicultural enviroment, nice colleagues, good reporting structure with a flat structure feel, exciting projects, career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Office is new, so slightly chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with your plans to focus on local operations, as you have already seen, a lot of attention is needed there for us to be competitive. There needs to be more collaboration between HQ and local operations as well as more integration with all functions...
