    Pros

    Vodafone International Services or Vodafone Shared Services Center now provides a great opportunity for international support experience. The health plan, gym membership, and other benefits are a huge plus.

    Cons

    Career advancement options are very limited. Also the promotion system needs revision. The current HR department is incompetent to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into your employees

    Pros

    There is a lot going on and there are great opportunities to grow and learn. There are not many people in the business so you get a chance to really stretch your skills and get involved in the details of day to day operations.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change and uncertainty in the company which can lead to high levels of stress. This is in part due to the nature of telecom and in part because of being in an emerging marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better follow through of big bets. There are many instances when there were big activities undertaken which fizzled out after a lot of investment.

    Pros

    Great working environment in Paddington office.
    Flexible working allowed (not in all teams though).
    Young, high calibre, intelligent colleagues.

    Cons

    Location of Newbury office is not convenient for commuting by public transport. On the outskirts of town, although free buses are provided.
    Difficult to progress career as banding structure is very flat. Can be trapped in one lateral move after another

    Advice to Management

    Adjust banding set up so that employees are also able to make smaller incremental upwards career moves.

    Pros

    Innovative projects and they are constantly striving to change for the better both in terms of products and services offered as well as enabling technologies.

    Everybody is trying to climb the greasy pole so you need to make your own path. The quality of line management could be better.

    The sky is the limit in terms of opportunities so long as you can forge the right path and impress the right people.
