    I have been working at Vodafone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good people. I enjoy the working environment. Very laid back. Not hard to go to work every day

    Cons

    Unfortunately, all the focus goes in to the NYC office. If you dont work out of that office, you dont get any perks. All about "selling something." Systems barely ever work

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more time to listen to your employees. Also, as Vodafone is growing, they are taking the "build the plane as its flow" process which isnt working.

    I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    international travel was a nice perk. Working with global teams. Having a global brand helped open doors for meetings. In some roles you can work autonomously.

    Cons

    Management has absolutely minimal interest in you or your career. Vodafone has a female leadership issue, which is why year after year the culture permits senior leaders to Dress in Drag and Perform vulgar skits during the annual sales meetings. international travel cut dramatically making the job less interesting. HR is abysmal, old boy network still in place, you will be pressured to go team building (drinking) with senior leaders who may be functioning alcoholics. There are very few opportunities for advancement here and the turnover rate is extremely high.

    Advice to Management

    Pretend to care about career advancement and development. Stop promoting Yes Men. There is no innovation going on at Vodafone right now. Many Snarky, tone deaf, miserable people leading the U.S.. They were depressing to talk to and work with. Stop the tacky drag routines at the sales meetings (senior management dressed like street walker with cartoon sized breasts dancing to Get Lucky to motivate the sales team) and actually hire a woman or 2. They would stop the tacky sexist drag act in the planning meetings!

    Pros

    Big name , good culture , good building and benefits

    Cons

    no good promotion packages. The more you work the less you get . Promotions are preserved to certain people by upper managment . HR doesnt play a real role in promoting employees, or checking their rights of upgrading positions

    Advice to Management

    change the rules. stop upper managment corruptions by providing promotions to only certain pple that you chose in advance

    I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
