    I worked at Tele2 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * A great place to learn new technologies. * Good life/work balance. * Room to shine if you want it.

    Cons

    * A conscious choice to under hire is made which effects the quality of their product * Strong central vs local issues caused by a lack of international style thinking * A lot of things are done without thinking about the value of the task, just to tick the box

    Advice to Management

    A legitimate push prioritizing quality over cost is needed, rather than simple talk by executives.

    I worked at Tele2 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can be yourself. No dress code.

    Cons

    No one takes the job seriously. It's like going to a kinder garden. If you are good at talking you can climb the ladder very fast. You don't have to be good at your job to get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of the good workers and stop looking away from office playtime.

    Pros

    Great people with great attitude. The values really matter here and the legacy from Stenbeck is still noticeable (even if its probably a lot smaller than 10 years ago). Definitely a work place for those who want to learn, dig in and earn both a salary and a reputation.

    Cons

    Declining number of markets, tendency of becoming a "normal" big company.

    Pros

    The company have done a great work with containing an environment where their employees are encourage to follow a career path within the company. There is always internal job postings, and a lot of movement. You also get the possibility to get really good within your area, and get to learn other areas if you show interest in it.

    Cons

    The company is extremely value word focused, and one of those words is to be Cost-efficient, which can in some cases be quite annoying if you do a really good work, and not get to be compensated for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good atmosphere! And make sure that the cost-efficiency not get confused with ungenerously.
