    Pros

    Global company with multiple ways of making money. Smart manage who really understand their business

    Cons

    many business with different priorities sometimes makes it difficult for people who are not in the central office to make a difference. I suppose this is similar to many other large companies, but in this case there is sometimes a disconnect

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing, but stick to your knitting

    Pros

    I've had the chance to know great people and i've learned a lot in terms of ecommerce, technolgy and online marketing. Great benefits and also good management.

    Invest more in trainings.

    I have been working at Naspers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    From my experience Naspers operates as a conglomerate of largerly disconneted businesses, each of which is a company on it own. And this is that specific company, not Naspers itself that you would be working for. If you love your sector and the team, then all the rest works fine. Naspers pretty much leaves you on your own to do your business. Generally, culture of the Group is very entrepreneurial and fast paced.

    Cons

    Naspers is usually quick both to acquire and to divest. Given high growth, which in many regions can be just phenominal, processes and technology are often not well established and the structure often does not act as a big company (which it is).

    Advice to Management

    Management is usually easily approachable, faced paced, open to new ideas, but, again, all depends on the project/company you will become involved with.
