    I worked at Swisscom full-time

    Pros

    Some bright collages, the company had a good range of products and services in technology as well as a broad global presence.

    Cons

    The size of the company tended to make decision making less than nimble, and there was some question as to its commitment to markets outside of its core area.

    Pros

    Big name company, provides verbal stability when stated that the company is a part of a 12B$ company.

    Cons

    Poor planning, budgeting, communications. Heavily siloed with no communal desire to help each other to gain the greater corporate goals. No department head outside of sales has any executive experience outside of Swisscom HS, therefore terrible practices are propagated.
