    I have been working at Swisscom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Home Office and Flexibility - Course and Training - Few good niches market/products/team - Global package is correct - Work everywhere in Switzerland. Easy to find an office.

    Cons

    - Infrastructure and Complexity of a big company (slow, hard to find the right person) - Strange but true... Cultural problems (Bern/Zurich vs the others). German part is very important - Bad workloads repartition & a lot of inefficient costs - Too big, too much management level and "coordinators"

    I worked at Swisscom full-time

    Pros

    • Stable company, has loads of money to invest/waste. • Salary is negotiated upfront and is generally higher than market rate. • Depending on your contract/salary, you can get time autonomy +/- 5 additional vacation days, which is extremely appealing. • Possibility to do remote work. • Some perks include free mobile handset plus a fixed monthly allowance which you can use to pay for mobile or tv subscriptions and a discount for rail abonnements (GA). • You benefit from discounted rates at all resturants in all Swisscom offices. Menu prices vary from CHF 10 to CHF 20.

    Cons

    • I still don't understand if Swisscom wishes to be an international company or a Swiss one. IMHO, after having worked there for a while, it really felt like working for a Swiss-german company. • If you are not that motivated of simply not such a hard-working person, then you'll be happy at Swisscom, as you won't be alone. It's a very good place if you have a 'I wanna retire' type of mindset. • Swisscom is not big, it's huge. Trust me, if you don't like an environment where you virtually cannot remember everybody's name and you become, as a result, only a number, then it's not for you. • There are endless layers of management, units, wanna-be project managers.. well a lot of red tape to deal with. You will definitely hear a lot of buzzwords like being agile - well, they will remain words. • At the time of writing, the monthly allowance doesn't even pay the top natel XL subscription. In general, Swisscom lacks behind when it comes to job benefits, which is especially felt if you have a family with small kids. • Career growth really repends on where you end up. I've definitely seen more people growing in managerial positions through networking, business lunches but most importantly after having spent millions of hours in meeting/focus rooms (which seems to add points). * Food is often very questionable at Swisscom restaurants.

    You'll have the chance to work in generally well organized environment, you'll have enough space to propose new solution and to be innovative, "the Management" it's usually prone to listen to your ideas and to give you the possibility to implement them

    the internal communication & cooperation with other departments it's sometime not easy, the official working language should be standardized to German & English
