    Pros

    The company culture is OK, inoffensive but just OK. They kept most of the perks of the old company I worked for in place until they moved operations to the East Coast.

    Cons

    Buongiorno is a multi-national and management sees employees more as a resource than as people. There's no cohesive business strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully, there's more connection between management and the employees they direct since I worked for them. If not, then that is what I would suggest.

    Pros

    Great company! Awesome culture, amazing benefits, transparent management and the work itself is a lot of fun! Mobile apps! Excellent work/personal life balance, casual dress code, good medical and dental benefits, smart senior management, summer fridays, company lunches, etc.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the mobile app environment the company has to quickly adapt to change.

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

    Pros

    Diverse group of people who really rally together to get things done. The perks weren't great, but the team did a lot outside of work, which brought lots of meaningful connections. The team worked hard and there were some really smart folks on the team trying to navigate the international politics of this company.

    Cons

    The leadership is non-existent. They are not innovative or visionary enough to compete in the mobile space and the HR organization is all about gossip, not work. These guys caught a lucky streak by cheating users out of subscription services, but are now finding it hard to operate in a fair manner.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation was and still is well below industry standard and promotions to the team were absent, but were often handed out left and right to the top guys. To keep good talent, you have to make others feel appreciated and show them as such too.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours.
    Great work-life balance
    Open to remote working if needed.

    Cons

    Non existent career development opportunities (only friends of friends).
    Management lacks of long-term realistic vision for the company.
    Especially in some departments, company is focused only on scaling existing operations globally and there's no almost room for innovation, learning and skills development (quantity over quality).

    Advice to Management

    Empower more the people that you already have.
