    I have been working at Three full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Committed on the culture, brand and finances. Lots of perks and things going on in main offices. People are generally friendly and social. Decent working hours and salary.

    Cons

    Working remotely, you can feel a little left out of the main office atmosphere. Office furniture could do with a refresh.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a bit more money on the facilities in remote offices and include them in social events a lot more.

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

    Pros

    You are developed as an individual. They really care about what you think, and all opinions are taken on board and not criticised. It was one of the best companies I have ever had the pleasure of working for, and I would go back in a heart beat. They also give you free tea and coffee which is a bonus :)

    Cons

    The main office is down in Star House (London), so many of the more advanced job roles are down there which is a shame.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the input and less on the output. Apart from that, most of the managers are doing a great job.

    I have been working at Three full-time

    Pros

    The company culture has historically been quite good and there are a lot of committed, clever people all focused on delivering quality results in a fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    The company is undergoing a large amount of change which is currently resulting in a lot of frustration and alienation.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of the impacts of so much change on loyal, committed employees. Don't let the great culture that has been cultivated over many years get impacted.

    Pros

    Great culture, good management, decent pay, unlimited data price plans for phones (only UK network to do so!) Probably the best network in the UK.

    Cons

    Commission has been scrapped in favour of bonuses. However, some bonuses are impossible to achieve, beware! (accelerator). Staff morale therefore has been lowered affecting front line business, this needs to be addressed by senior management as a matter of top priority.

    Advice to Management

    Fix accelerator bonuses, make it realistic to achieve based on store footfalls or bring back commissions and share the profits with the front line staff. Bring in better uniforms too! :)

    Pros

    Some great people &vwork ethics of "We can do it" were always ones to be admired

    Cons

    Theri was never enough collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Three will soon be managing a network 33 million strong. It needs to be more mature as an organisation
