    I worked at Millicom full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow. For senior roles, the compensation schemes are very comprehensive and competitive

    Cons

    Lots of changes, sometimes all at once.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that compensation at less-senior levels in the organization are competitive vs. the markets. Pace the introduction of successive changes, to ensure that prior changes have taken hold and their benefits are clear before introducing new changes

    Advice to Management

    The company should be more clear about the objectives and know how to better choose the projects because the team is overloaded so many times and this doesn't help to obtain high-quality software.

    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.
