    There is some kind of bonding that always exists in CWW.. We do get a sense of togetherness which always helped to achieve higher objectives.

    Though it exists in other org, one thing that is bit disappointing is around some promotions given to be chosen one.

    Just be transparent.

    Pros

    Lovely people to work with. I was generally left to my own devices as long as I achieved what I needed to.

    Cons

    No training offered or provided; they didn't have the budget. The company didn't understand customer service. Towards the end there was a culture of bullying. They have been taken over by Vodafone now and I understand the bullies have had to change their behaviour.

    Advice to Management

    Your customers prefer honesty. Honesty towards customers, colleagues and to yourself would be a good start.
