    I worked at Vodafone

    Pros

    Discount on tariffs for friends and family

    Cons

    To say you're just a number is an understatement.

    Vodafone endlessly acquire other companies without really understanding how they operate, making poor decisions and lack of judgement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication needs to be improved and they need to listen to their teams more, they know what they're talking about...

    - If you decide to participate to the YOUniversity program know that you'll have to do 3 months in a shop selling sims and phones
    - With the YOUniversity it takes a while to grow, but then there are good opportunities
