  3. "Development and relationship: special devices are a GREAT market opportunity!"

    Pros

    Good place to work: nice work environment, interesting challenges, good benefits, salary not so bad, but carrier planning not so clear....

    Cons

    As any workplace, there are some problems: workflow approval is slow, everybody avoids taking risk on decision, and there are some decisions that are not so clear....

    Advice to Management

    It is regarding management style: why is not possible to share the information with the Team? Why is necessary to "hide" the decision reason? Sometimes is really difficult to understand some decisions because there´s no official information about that.....

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

    Pros

    As the leading company in the market, it has a lot of resources to invest in marketing and in technology, so it's a great place to learn from. There you'll work with different iniatives and tools, such as vast market research, strong BI and diverse media plans.

    Cons

    Since the company was bought by Telefonica, the corporate culture has been changing and the company is less autonomous. Many decisions depend on global alignment which takes time and not necessarily is the best for the local market.

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

    Pros

    Benefits: smartphone device, mobile cellular line, discounted broadband

    Cons

    Lots of overtime and bad management, have unexperienced people coming from other companies taking positions that should be filled by more experienced people that know and understand the area and company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing friends from other companies just to promote them and start paying attention in people who worked hard years in the area to keep the company functioning

    Pros

    Good benefits is what they sell to you on the interview.

    Cons

    Does not have a clearly way to grow in your careers. You have to have lucky to get a good manager. I saw some coworkers grown on their careers while everybody below my boss, is on the same place.

    Advice to Management

    keep your eyes on the feedback from everybody.
