    Former Employee - Callcenter in Londrina (Brazil)

    I worked at Vivo (Brazil) part-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Many different kind of plataforms to work and good benefits to the employers.Depending on the position and department you are located it can be good.

    Cons

    Many very unreliable people , mainly almost all the managers. All are governed by a dirty personal conduct and forget how they really should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change all your executives and managers.They drive the company to the garbage.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Opportunity to chnage to other departments
    Good life / work balance

    Cons

    Negative outlook in the long run limits career progress
    Political relationships, more than meritocracy, define career progress. There is no career plan
    Salaries below average
    Increasing Spanish interference reduces Brazilian autonomy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meritocracy and a career plan would improve the company's response to the increasing challenges that the telecom sector is facing.

    I worked at Vivo (Brazil)

    Pros

    You have a big discount on your cell phone bill. If you are a tech, there are a bunch of opportunities to study. It's a hands on training job.

    Cons

    They treat you as you are worthless. You are only notice when things go wrong. When everything runs fine, you're just there consuming their profit.
    There is no organization at all on this company. Anyone do things his own way, there are no procedures, no rules, everything is urgent, there is no planing at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote people just because they polish your apples. Plan and let people know what you want, give then a direction, don't let them run without a north.

    Great place to learn, but changing culture

    Former Employee - Marketing

    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.

    Development and relationship: special devices are a GREAT market opportunity!

    I have been working at Vivo (Brazil)

    Pros

    Good place to work: nice work environment, interesting challenges, good benefits, salary not so bad, but carrier planning not so clear....

    Cons

    As any workplace, there are some problems: workflow approval is slow, everybody avoids taking risk on decision, and there are some decisions that are not so clear....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is regarding management style: why is not possible to share the information with the Team? Why is necessary to "hide" the decision reason? Sometimes is really difficult to understand some decisions because there´s no official information about that.....

    Great company

    Former Employee - Marketing in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)
    Former Employee - Marketing in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

    I worked at Vivo (Brazil) full-time

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot. There are lots of opportunities for those who work pro-actively. Internal movements is also common. Salary is comparable to industry rates, hence smaller than other industries. Promotions happen, especially in new areas.

    Cons

    Culture is very "corporate". Lots of processes and some bureaucracy. Beware if you don't tolerate that. Cafeteria is not great. It has never been. If you are a 9-6 type of employee, don't expect to be promoted quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The industry is mature - work hard on providing great customer service. Focus on customer and keep doing what you are doing.
