A dynamic, open and professional company

Programmer Manager (Former Employee)
Maastricht (Netherlands)

I worked at Vodafone full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery good position in the Dutch marketplace. Good working conditions with a great office concept, open space and flexible system. Open door policy also applies to the top management. The management culture is geared toward coaching and improving people managers' performance.

ConsInfluence of Vodafone Group increasingly felt, results in less autonomy for the operating companies, long decision times, lots of politics.The business is under a lot of pressure due to worsening market conditions. The pressures have resulted and will continue to result in shrinking headcounts and mounting work pressure, with to be expected degradation of morale and work ethics (i.e. dodgy firing practices).

Advice to Senior ManagementMake tough decisions quicker. Many issues that the company has experienced of the last years (e.g. pressure from OTT players, network problems, IT replacement projects) could have been anticipated and prevented years ago. Work quicker with other opco's to share / centralize staff and other non essential positions.

Committed, engaged, positive

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Newbury, England (UK)

I have been working at Vodafone as a contractor for less than a year

ProsNew leadership as of January 2014. Open and approachable style, positive mindset, flexible and eager to compete. Lateral career opportunities definitely exist for people who are keen and effective at networking: a good place to build a stable career, if not a stellar one. Great emphasis on diversity and work/life balance.

ConsCumbersome and bureaucratic in decision-making as a result of its size. Emphasis on positive mindset leads them to take the competition less seriously than they could do. They tend to favour bringing in more senior leaders from outside than promoting home-grown talent: a possible lack of opportunity to move upwards?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
