    Clash between dynamic private enterprise & staid ex-semi state employees. Excellent benefits and nice work environment.

    Former Employee - Customer Services in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Vodafone Ireland full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Very pleasant people
    Results driven - you deliver, you are rewarded
    High performers are regularly put in "acting up" positions
    Good training available
    Internal communications is good - everyone knows the strategy and what they need to do to deliver against it - you should know you are part of a bigger play and how you contribute to delivering against the strategy
    Excellent benefits - I stress EXCELLENT

    Cons

    Too many secondments into Ireland from other Vodafone countries to be used a training ground - obviously this a great resource for Vodafone Group as it's a smaller market if the risk doesn't pay off.
    Large portion of staff come of ex-semi state company eircom which was union heavy - who continue to have the "entitlement" attitude and are less open to change (if it means doing actual work) - it's stifles the more creative and dynamic employees who don't have this background - requires strong leadership to change the mould. Which I understand is now happening.
    Despite being results driven and reward being based on meritocracy - it is still very political and you need to play that game.
