Good company to work for sometime, used to be better in the past

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Madrid (Spain)

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

Prosgood office atmosphere, fair work/personal life, more holidays when compared with simliar companies (30 days), interesting projects, you will meet a number of compentent employees there

Consvery difficult to get internal promotions, company is not really facilitating people´s development: not enough training, few international assignments. Office location is not very good for most of the people

Advice to Senior ManagementInternal employees should get more focus and promotions rather than bringing external people into management positions

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lack of get things done attitude

Customer Service Manager (Former Employee)
Madrid (Spain)

I worked at Vodafone España full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people is great and the work atmosphere is quite positive. Departments like Marketing and the technical ones have great position in the company and employees are greatly taken cared of.

ConsEverything gets done through third parties like Indra or marketing agencies. Everyone at the company "manages" relationships but nothing really gets done internally. It's a highly political environment.
Be prepared to spend way to many hours in work mode. Even if you don't spent more than 9-10 hours at the office the cellphone will not stop receiving emails from your managers.
