    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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great chance to buid a career in Telecom and get invaluable experience in every aspect of Telecom provider - due to very small amount of staff You will perform duties you've never done before.

    Cons

    Very small chance to get a new job, employers stay at the same positions for a long time.
    Job overload - lot of work, You will never be in time, though unsatisfied. Cost reduction is a pain - you will implement the cheapest solutions - the quality of the result will be truly poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to task distributing and staff load.
