    Pros

    Easy to get more responsabilities if you work hard. Overall good team spirit.

    Cons

    Almost impossible to get your salary at market value after a few years in the company (i was there 3 years). The increase in responsibility is not accompanied by an increase in your wage.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheapskate with your wages. Promote and raise your best employees. Otherwise they (like me) will leave.

    Pros

    Transversal vision through the entire network. Consulting paradigm, making techno-economical evaluations for different technical solutions for the network.

    Cons

    Low salary, and even though progression opportunities may rise if you're patient enough, they may have little impact in salary.

    Advice to Management

    Extract value from the competence center that Meo has in Lisbon. Their workers are very skilled, experienced, dynamic and pro-active.
