    They care about their employees, the internal training is good, it was quite an enjoyable place to work. there was a friendly atmosphere.

    Unfortunately the Company was mismanaged financially. The executive did not know where to go with the company and eventually destroyed it.

    They should have focused on what they did best. UK Telecommunications. They diversified too far, both geographically and technically. They became obsessed with expansion.

    Pros

    It's good company to work with.Started with Cable & Wireless Worldwide and continuing after it has been taken over by Vodaf

    Cons

    Micro management has come into pics post Vodafone acquirement. Employee benefits have gone down the lane.Lot of company facing policies are implemented keeping employees at bay.
    Cost cutting is huge and thus reducing the benefit of hike & growth and lot.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees like human being and not as work machine.Give them proper compensation for the work load. If you are putting the internal opportunity then allow employees to avail them instead of keeping them waiting for long and filling the positions from outside.
    Try to retain the employees with better facility. Improve the work-life balance instead of putting the employee under tremendous work pressure. Increase the employee benefits. Disclose the policies in detail. Keep the employees in loop with major changes instead of the decision to be thrown at the employees irrespective of his/her agreement to accept the same.There are lot more.
