    Pros

    Very interesting work, always changing and keeps you challenged. The telecom market involves many types of business lines that allow a lot of career opportunities.

    Cons

    The processes and business deals can sometimes take a long time to complete, which may be difficult for some people to feel productive.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that management offers more feedback on job performance in order to give employees a more useful professional development focus.

    Pros

    Great work environment (home based + hot desking office) and conditions. Good competitive but supportive culture. Generous vacation, competitive pay, decent equipment to work with.

    Cons

    Network operator industry is on this perpetual slide. As an operator your want stability and predictability yet the industry is one of increasingly rapid innovation and continuous competitive threats. Service innovation and price decline. Always sprinting to tread water. This can be a bit frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    Just focus on being the greatest MNO you can be. Shareholder return is secondary, market share is secondary.

    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

    Pros

    Top performing company, among the few European players relevant in the worldwide digital landscape. Great workplace, multi cultural and multi national. Organisation model is very comprehensive and on a constant quest to keep the technical lead while running faster operations.

    Cons

    Group governance can be complex to understand, very difficult to implement and sometimes impossible to influence. OpCos are sandwiched between tight business goals and decentralised decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Dare more with innovative products. Vodafone has pioneered and failed to adopt most of the stuff Google and Apple patented and launched ages later. Mobile payments, SIM-less devices anyone? Be ready to disrupt a little more, innovation is a command and conquer game

    Pros

    Treats employees very well, better than the other telcos in the surrounding area.

    Cons

    Decision making is hard, very hard for some senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    Like a lot of businesses, take a few more risks, less red tape.
