    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.

    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.....

    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.

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