    Pros

    Work Life Balance, Work From Home.

    Cons

    Process Driven and de-humanising. Company Organisation encourages competition and discourages creativity and learning. Many of the Personal Development themes are check lists.

    Advice to Management

    People are the Core of VF.

    Pros

    They pay well and they always back their staff to the hilt. It's an ambitious company, despite achieving all that it has already, and there is plenty of opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    The same as any retail job, rude and annoying customers. Also, the payslips are very hard to make sense of, so there is sometimes a feeling that you're being underpaid, but because they don't make sense, it's really hard to prove it.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, come on to the shop floor and see how your team performs. Sell with the team instead of barking orders and hiding behind 'mountains of paperwork'

    Pros

    Young environment, kind people, organised company, high remuneration.

    Cons

    Continuos internal conflict, boring main task (reporting), not easy to "feel part of the Vodafone family"

    Advice to Management

    They should make their young consultants feel more part of the company.

    Pros

    Great work environment, Lots of broad experience that really helps move things forward.

    Cons

    Parking on site can be a nightmare some employees coasting where others really taking pride in their job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused, don't try to change too much at one time - do one thing right rather than 5 only nearly done. Too much reliance on contractors

    It's great that you're finding the flexibility that Vodafone offers beneficial. Sometimes, the flexible desk policy can mean that you're sat next to someone you haven't met, but hopefully you've made ... More

    Pros

    50% off phones. Ok work from home policy - which basically means the office is empy of friday, and can't find a desk on a Tuesday.

    Cons

    Self-centred bonus scheme leads to everyone for themselves - as you're measured against your piers.
    Managers are looking upwards struggling with competing with their own piers. Expect little support.
    Everyone for themselves - if you know this when you start you'll survive better.
    No one stays long.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better team environment, and bonus scheme to prevent back stabbing and undermining of achievements.
