    I have been working at Vivo (Brazil) (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging Work, no routine, great people. Great place to learn about technologies, get in contact with different products and services

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow growth. Processes are not flexible and requires a lot of approval layers, that slow down the delivery process and innovation. We feel like we work a lot but do not deliver as accordingly

    Advice to Management

    Give more autonomy for employees, less control and more trust

    I worked at Vivo (Brazil) full-time

    Pros

    Benefits (were better), time flexibility, it's possible to accelerate your carrer faster, many opportunities in many areas inside the company. Global career was hard but possible.

    Cons

    Some managers are very distant from the employees, maybe because there's a lot of turnover in management level (you will have a new boss every year). The culture was good, but since the acquisition of GVT the company began to cut costs (firing the older teammates and hiring junior level people).

    Advice to Management

    Be closer to your team, work together with your employees, not only demanding tasks. Make them feel part of the solution.

    Pros

    VIVO has a lot of opportunities to develop itself, this company is a technology leader and your hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Management level is changing after GVT acquisition, thus, directions and goals weren't clear at that time.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time to clarify company directions and goals within acquisitions and transformations.
