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

    Pros

    Millicom is a very fast paced environment at the forefront of developing markets. You have the opportunity to take a lot of responsibility. Being present in developing markets there is also a real possibility to have impact on people lives.

    Cons

    There has been too much changes over the last few years. The company needs some stability now. It is also unclear what the long term plan is with the Latin America and Africa business. The headquarters in London are also quite top-heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Management should work harder on employer branding. It could get better at attracting top talent given the exciting space in the eco system the company occupies. Management also needs to give employees some more stability and long term plans.
