Pros

Public service mentality remains, resulting in a regular 9-5 job in most scenarios.
Reasonably stable employment.

Cons

No innovation or excitement in the workplace.

Advice to Management

Re-analyze the strategic direction on outsourcing and vendors, choose the right vendor for the right job. Stop funding vendors to build products, find products that already or else develop them in-house.
Remove the blind 70/30 off-shoring rule in favor of measurable, proven productivity improvements and cost reductions from vendors.
Implement a coherent, enterprise-wide architecture practice to remove overlaps, contention and politics across the divisions, departments & groups

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Working on the latest new products, great people everywhere doing their best, most very switched on and dedicated at getting the best outcomes for the customer and the company. The chance to work on things that impact a large number of people.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy stifling real progress. Still a large degree of political play, silos, defending existing arrangements. Needs a massive cultural change if to succeed in a market that is slowly taking away the high margins it has enjoyed for years.

    Advice to Management

    First get some engineers or software professionals on the board. The place seems to be run by accounting decisions for short terms numbers - this may work for a short time, but will put the company in worse stead in the longer run.


  2. "Great Experience"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent remuneration considering job role; great exposure to all facets within the telecommunications industry - both business and retail; lots of on-the-job learning opportunities

    Cons

    Very sales oriented - KPIs involved sales only and does not consider customer service. Often understaffed, had to deal with angsty customers who had waited a long time.
