  1. "Senior Consultant"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are not bad. Company sets aside $1000 per year for employee training / self improvement. Generally encourages work life balance.

    Cons

    Queer bonus scheme though as staff would need to invest a certain amount of their pay to 'bet' on the company's performance for bonus. This scheme was recently abolished though.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High variety of Jobs - admin, economics, Marketing, IT, Network, operations etc etc. Very old Company (came out of former postal Services in Switzerland) - historically grown mind set and way of thinking - not always but often enough. Leader in human centric design product devolopment, Innovation design - large freedom for creativitiy. Lots of efforts to offer good work-life-balance

    Cons

    highly political - decisions not made because of good Evaluation but because Boss decides that THIS is a good idea. Upper Management lacks academic Formation - decision sometimes made on "Stammtisch" Niveau.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Swisscom full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A winners mentality. Strong market position, continuous efforts to stay on top in terms of service quality and product innovation. Very good employer (salary, fringe benefits, work-life balance). An agile and easy to work with company compared to other telcos (less politics, accessible top management).

    Cons

    Still slow compared to younger, infrastructure-less companies. Little growth perspectives in general (but still good growth in specific niches).
