    Nice people, overall fun environment. But the opportunity to grow are limited.

    Upper management is very slow in taking decisions and are very very clunky about headcounts

    Pros

    It's good company to work with.Started with Cable & Wireless Worldwide and continuing after it has been taken over by Vodaf

    Cons

    Micro management has come into pics post Vodafone acquirement. Employee benefits have gone down the lane.Lot of company facing policies are implemented keeping employees at bay. Cost cutting is huge and thus reducing the benefit of hike & growth and lot.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees like human being and not as work machine.Give them proper compensation for the work load. If you are putting the internal opportunity then allow employees to avail them instead of keeping them waiting for long and filling the positions from outside. Try to retain the employees with better facility. Improve the work-life balance instead of putting the employee under tremendous work pressure. Increase the employee benefits. Disclose the policies in detail. Keep the employees in loop with major changes instead of the decision to be thrown at the employees irrespective of his/her agreement to accept the same.There are lot more.

    There is some kind of bonding that always exists in CWW.. We do get a sense of togetherness which always helped to achieve higher objectives.

    Though it exists in other org, one thing that is bit disappointing is around some promotions given to be chosen one.

    Just be transparent.

    Pros

    Lovely people to work with. I was generally left to my own devices as long as I achieved what I needed to.

    Cons

    No training offered or provided; they didn't have the budget. The company didn't understand customer service. Towards the end there was a culture of bullying. They have been taken over by Vodafone now and I understand the bullies have had to change their behaviour.

    Advice to Management

    Your customers prefer honesty. Honesty towards customers, colleagues and to yourself would be a good start.
