    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.

    I worked at Vivo (Brazil) full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    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.
