    I worked at Cable & Wireless Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Doesn't Recommend
