    I worked at Vivo (Brazil) full-time

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot. There are lots of opportunities for those who work pro-actively. Internal movements is also common. Salary is comparable to industry rates, hence smaller than other industries. Promotions happen, especially in new areas.

    Cons

    Culture is very "corporate". Lots of processes and some bureaucracy. Beware if you don't tolerate that. Cafeteria is not great. It has never been. If you are a 9-6 type of employee, don't expect to be promoted quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The industry is mature - work hard on providing great customer service. Focus on customer and keep doing what you are doing.
