  1. "Senior Consultant"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are not bad. Company sets aside $1000 per year for employee training / self improvement. Generally encourages work life balance.

    Cons

    Queer bonus scheme though as staff would need to invest a certain amount of their pay to 'bet' on the company's performance for bonus. This scheme was recently abolished though.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High variety of Jobs - admin, economics, Marketing, IT, Network, operations etc etc. Very old Company (came out of former postal Services in Switzerland) - historically grown mind set and way of thinking - not always but often enough. Leader in human centric design product devolopment, Innovation design - large freedom for creativitiy. Lots of efforts to offer good work-life-balance

    Cons

    highly political - decisions not made because of good Evaluation but because Boss decides that THIS is a good idea. Upper Management lacks academic Formation - decision sometimes made on "Stammtisch" Niveau.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure to hire high kalibers and to Keep them with interesting challenges. Reduce politcal decision making

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A winners mentality. Strong market position, continuous efforts to stay on top in terms of service quality and product innovation. Very good employer (salary, fringe benefits, work-life balance). An agile and easy to work with company compared to other telcos (less politics, accessible top management).

    Cons

    Still slow compared to younger, infrastructure-less companies. Little growth perspectives in general (but still good growth in specific niches).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up questioning the business model continuously. Partner with younger companies to stay innovative and fresh.
