    Pros

    Vodafone International Services or Vodafone Shared Services Center now provides a great opportunity for international support experience. The health plan, gym membership, and other benefits are a huge plus.

    Cons

    Career advancement options are very limited. Also the promotion system needs revision. The current HR department is incompetent to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into your employees

    Pros

    Travel to the UK. Good pay. Worked remote from home. Financially strong company. Great products and services.

    Cons

    HR was the worst - the company used Performance Improvement Plans (PIP) to get rid of good employees management didn't like. My manager and Americas executive management were the pits. UK had almost double the amount of holidays and time-off as the Americas team.

    Advice to Management

    Take some people skills classes and be more appreciative of your non-management employees.

    Pros

    Benefits are solid
    Good amount of PTO
    Pay is decent...Honestly that is all

    Cons

    Managers are goofy, socially akward, or just dont genuinely care enough about anyhting but themselves.

    Selfish culture when it comes to calibrations to determine raises and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Needs a complete rehaul

    Pros

    There is a lot going on and there are great opportunities to grow and learn. There are not many people in the business so you get a chance to really stretch your skills and get involved in the details of day to day operations.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change and uncertainty in the company which can lead to high levels of stress. This is in part due to the nature of telecom and in part because of being in an emerging marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better follow through of big bets. There are many instances when there were big activities undertaken which fizzled out after a lot of investment.
