    I worked at Ooredoo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was very competitive. They are actively investing in operations, so you get lots of support on the local level for investment.

    Cons

    Some people at Group are severly overpaid for what they contribute. They have created a central beuracracy that can slow operational decisions down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't second guess every operational decision. Hire people you trust, give them authority, and hold them accountable.

    Rigid rules and redtape that curtail innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To achieve your vision of being an innovative player that can really bring true the wishes of your subscribers, you must adopt a much more flexible approach to hiring in terms of the amount of experience you demand. Innovation is now lead by the young, and you are missing out on a massive knowledge-base, energy and know-how on the modern marketplace
