    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.

    Advice to Management

    It would be well to spin off or jettison businesses that do not have the commitment of senior management. It appears that is the direction being taken.

    I worked at Swisscom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people in the US are outstanding. Everyone works together for the purpose of success. From the call center, the noc, account management, sales everyone does what they have to do to get the job done.

    Cons

    Dealing with our management components in Europe is a nightmare. They absolutely do not understand business in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Run US and Europe separately, running them the same just simply does not work.

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Serious need to completely re-vamp the entire EC. Bring in new blood (not necessarily from Hospitality). Create and communicate a strategic plan and see it through. The complete company future view must be more than 12 months.
