No personal life due to overloading with work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Saint Petersburg (Russia)

I worked at Tele2 full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat 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.

ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementPay more attention to task distributing and staff load.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Outdated thinking guides a company that has lost it's purpose decades ago

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

I worked at Tele2 full-time for more than a year

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

ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementCreate new products and areas of profit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
