    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.

    Outdated thinking guides a company that has lost it's purpose decades ago

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    Pros

    It's a huge company, so many customers and some really great people.

    Cons

    They still do the same things they did 20 years ago. The diffuse structure of the company means no one has any room to move. Feels like all the A players left years ago. The products have been the same for the passed 10 years and are growing increasingly disparate from what the market really wants.

    The company lives by being cheap. And everything about the company is exactly that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create new products and areas of profit.

    Fast rate of exchange of colleagues sometimes.
    Maybe sometimes the "middle" managers are absolutely unnecessary.

    Do some more effort to keep staff by throwing out some intern education.
