    It's great that you're finding the flexibility that Vodafone offers beneficial. Sometimes, the flexible desk policy can mean that you're sat next to someone you haven't met, but hopefully you've made ... More

    I worked at Vodafone full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

  9. Good policies overall. Poor ground level execution in some cases

    I worked at Vodafone

    Pros

    Great employee policies. Strong brand. Nice incentives and feel good factors.

    Cons

    The policies dont get translated in many cases to actual benefits due to poor middle level managers. Too much of shifting around to various cities if you are in Sales and Marketing - wont let you settle in a city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people work in verticals they are good at, dont just rotate them just for the sake of it. People with families need to start building roots in a city, shifting around frequently doesnt help.

    Former Contractor - Sales Representative Adwords in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Vodafone as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Entry level for Dutch speakers to start in Dublin. The company tries to make the switch of country as smooth as possible. There is engagement with the employees.

    Cons

    Long term development is difficult due to the high focus on hitting sales numbers. As Teletech is a vendor for other companies, it's hard to grow internally as well, since you are stuck with working for a certain client. Short term however, it's great to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much really, since it's focus is on hitting sales numbers, there is not that much which you can change at the moment. The work at least wasn't too hard and work pressure is fine.

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

    Pros

    50% off phones. Ok work from home policy - which basically means the office is empy of friday, and can't find a desk on a Tuesday.

    Cons

    Self-centred bonus scheme leads to everyone for themselves - as you're measured against your piers.
    Managers are looking upwards struggling with competing with their own piers. Expect little support.
    Everyone for themselves - if you know this when you start you'll survive better.
    No one stays long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better team environment, and bonus scheme to prevent back stabbing and undermining of achievements.
