A friendly place to work in an open plan office. However, relying on one revenue stream as meant that many people including contractors were laid off due to the virus.

ingen vill samarbeta utan alla håller sig på sin kant pga rädsla att någon ska deras jobb.
Kommunikationen är urdålig, feg och oprofessionell.

GSMA Ltd has a high performance culture. Great people but quite stressful at times. GSMA Ltd are not given as much credit as they deserve. The culture is quite tense - not fun.
Pros
Strong leads

Culture can be quite aggressive

Efter att ha arbetat i 6mån hos GSMA, gick min chef på mammaledigt. Jag tog över hennes arbete plus mitt eget men ingen rekryterades för min chefs roll, eller ens kommunicera det till mig.
Trots arbetsvolymen så lyckades jag bra med mina siffror så när en ny "chef(min chefs nya chef) som känt mig i någon månad berättade för mig att efterr 18 månaders anställning så ville "de" inte förnya mitt kontrakt eftersom jag inte "passade in"! Min chef var fortfarande mammaledig, samt att personen som inte ville förnya mitt kontrakt kunde inte ge mig punkter vad som jag behövde jobba på eller varför de inte förnyade. Detta fick jag reda på 9 dagar (!) innan mitt kontrakt gick ut. Oerhört oprofessionellt!
Pros
Kylskåp med gratis dricka, wienerbröd
Cons
Kollegor

During my time at GSMA I learnt to multi task selling across a range of products including sponsorship, exhibition space, digital media and leading the delegate sales team. Typical work day was 9-12 hours with a culture to always be "on-line".
Pros
Great event - Mobile World Congress was one of the best events I had the pleasure to work on.
Cons
Work / Life balance not great and decision making from the senior management team could be very slow

Worked as a member of the finance team. Had a very poor experience where I was undermined as a manager at every opportunity. They need to either respect a manager to do their job & treat them with the benefit of their experience. Over worked team with some people who just shouldn’t be there.
Very surprised at the turnover of staff, most of whom left without securing another role first. Paints a picture which was very true.
Pros
Free breakfast, working from home
Cons
Long hours

Pros
Free food, flexible working place

with 15 years digital marketing experience, my role was admin monkey. No one listens as they're too territorial about their job and wants to be involved in everything even if they dont have any expertise in the field.
Lack of communication, vision and recognition makes the place seem like you're going backwards rather than forward.

They do pay you well but that's about it.
Pros
Salary, breakfast monday and friday
Cons
career going backwards

A large organisation. Not always the best organised but has the feel of a very modern and progressive tech company. There is a lot of politics amongst the management - almost everyone is a manager!
Pros
table tennis, office, working from home options
Cons
long hours, HR needs an overhaul

A good organisation that could be much improved upon with stronger leadership. Too few carry too many.

Good benefits on offer and opportunity for those who apply.

Looked after the diary of the executives to secure their meeting with potential customers and marketplace sellers/buyers.

Organised all logistics and room dressing and AV equipment.


Managing the team of 6 onsite was challenging because things kept changing and to reschedule hundreds of meetings and add new one to the calendar of the day as well as the following weeks was very demanding but also very exciting
