    I have been working at Vodafone full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of support is available from your team/line manager and there is a vast array of self assessment and learning tools available if you're interested in a particular area.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get everyone in a room required to make a decision as it is such a fractal environment with dedicated teams and it can be difficult to know who to talk to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strip out some of the politics and do more to promote better team work within wider teams but more importantly across different departments that have a heavy reliance on one another.
