    Very challenging environment with good peers and management team that drives the business with passion. Great career opportunities within company or group.

    Change the current management in all levels of the company that are there since panafon. New people in management is needed that will remove the chains .

    Pros

    Benefits compared to market and outlook

    Cons

    (in no particular order)
    Byzantine-type bureaucracy/too many layers of incompetent managers
    High complexity/hundreds of integrated silos
    Things are moving at the speed of a snail
    Public sector-like morale, especially for decade-old tenured employees and contractors
    Spends gazillions in products/services/irrelevant technology systems Dead On Arrival
    Corruption/Serves as nurture for dozens of consulting firms that live off it/Group executives are being tricked & fooled to believe otherwise each time they pay a visit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What management? Major overhaul, bold decisions are needed to shake things from the ground up

    Pros

    Used to be a pretty cool company with a management team that was close to your job title and could understand your needs.

    Cons

    Nowdays everything is done with the logic of saving costs. They simply dont care for the employee, they care for the numbers.

    Current Employee - Group Product Manager in Athens (Greece)
    Current Employee - Group Product Manager in Athens (Greece)

    I have been working at Vodafone-Panafon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Brand name, technology oriented, innovative products, customer oriented, good office space environment, still paying bonus, have not yet cut down salaries although most of companies located in Greece have done so. A great place for someone to start his/her carrier or to be hired in an upper level management position.

    Cons

    A lot of politics, lobbying, very difficult to climb up the hierarchy, long working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee morale is getting worse by the day. Although HR is doing a good job, it is for the Heads of Departments to work much more on coaching their employees and support them in order to overcome this. Even longer and longer working hours will be needed in the very near future and the fact that there is a lot of unemployment out there is not the tool to be used to keep people happy...

    Try to make a plan and stick with it. Master plans changing every three months confuses everyone and brings no results.
