    Vodafone America' It's more about how well you are liked and not how well you do your job

    I worked at Vodafone Americas Foundation full-time

    Pros

    Large company with strong global reach for wireless solutions outside the US. Healthy financials give customers security a serious problem can be fixed. Base salaries commensurate with the industry while overall compensation plan is below that average.

    Cons

    Outside wireless services, not including the US, this company has trouble or can't deliver. Contracting process is almost impossible. Instead of promoting new ideals, legal will block something because of the "risk" of regulatory review in Europe. Lots of solutions are rolled out each year, but poor attention to product, solution, market and roll-out detail often leave the sales and support personnel incapable of delivering.

    Highly political to the point that incompetent people are kept based on how well they are liked and not how well they do their job. Managers fear retaliation for letting go a "friend of the president of the Americas" even if the dismissal is warranted. It's a closed group to be a "friend" having to been hired directly and not through acquisition by a British telecommunications company. All other people are subject to dismissal at a whim.

    It's no secret that the relationship between Vodafone who owns 45% of Verizon Wireless is strained to non-existent. Through Verizon Business, Verizon Communications competes directly with Vodafone for global non-wireless business. Verizon's demand to be in global control is such that a merger of the two companies would end up worse than the Dialmer purchase of Chrysler.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From Vodafone Group get rid of the entire management team from the President to the RVPs. Return back to a place where employees are respected as a valuable asset to the company. Remove the fear that a productive employee will be let go just because they have fallen out of favor and no longer a liked by the president.
