    Pros

    Good benefits is what they sell to you on the interview.

    Cons

    Does not have a clearly way to grow in your careers. You have to have lucky to get a good manager. I saw some coworkers grown on their careers while everybody below my boss, is on the same place.

    Advice to Management

    keep your eyes on the feedback from everybody.

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

    Pros

    Benefits: smartphone device, mobile cellular line, discounted broadband

    Cons

    Lots of overtime and bad management, have unexperienced people coming from other companies taking positions that should be filled by more experienced people that know and understand the area and company.

    Stop bringing friends from other companies just to promote them and start paying attention in people who worked hard years in the area to keep the company functioning

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Vivo (Brazil) part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't have any pros for this company. Unless you don't have any other option, maybe working there for a few months so you won't starve is something, but in a few months you'll probably prefer to be unemployed and struggling than in this place.

    Cons

    Salary is average, benefits are average, work/life balance is non-existent, overall, it's a woeful working experience.

    Advice to Management

    To change it, it will be need to shape things from top till down, don't see it happening soon.

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

    Pros

    As the leading company in the market, it has a lot of resources to invest in marketing and in technology, so it's a great place to learn from. There you'll work with different iniatives and tools, such as vast market research, strong BI and diverse media plans.

    Cons

    Since the company was bought by Telefonica, the corporate culture has been changing and the company is less autonomous. Many decisions depend on global alignment which takes time and not necessarily is the best for the local market.
