    I worked at Telenor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Additional benefits, medical and discounts. Great company to learn about the products, to learn about how business works. Gives you real glimpse about big company strategy and how that "machine" works. Lot of opportunity to develop your knowledge and to stay on track about industry movement. Great To develop your knowledge about the market also. Great CXO team, mid management so-so

    Cons

    As a person starting from entry level position, one can grow only to a certain level ( both in learning curve and salary increase). It seems that sometimes it's better to build your self in some other small company and then to come here to "pick up the fruits". Company sometimes tends to oversee the internal employees potential.

    Advice to Management

    Think "inside" the box when your hiring. TDP can help you to understand potential, not just to satisfy written policies and rules.

    I have been working at Telenor full-time

    Pros

    It had beautiful open & transparent culture, provided employees with very good growth opportunities. Learning opportunities were great. Work life balance was very good with managers sometimes went out of their ways to ensure it.

    Cons

    Things have changed since 2015, Now there is biasedness in every thing. Corporate HR has a big role in facilitating all this. They got rid of one of the most productive HR resources - Training Head at CO, through internal politics & since then they have gone systematically to get rid of employees who have different ideas. Sad to see an organisation with such great culture go down like this.

    Advice to Management

    They need to put the focus back to employees - their tag line of "people first" seems to have taken a backseat.
