I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Vodafone compensate extremely well, they give you free reign to do as you see fit to complete your task.

Cons

For a company so big they have a very immature corporate culture, they have people in directorial positions within their technical side who have been promoted up from working with the company when it was first started, most of the time they do not comprehend what you are telling them about what you are doing or how a problem needs to be fixed. A lot of internal e-mails communicating known issues that could hold the company liable for negligence were passed around to be kept quiet instead of addressing the issue at hand.

Advice to Management

Take a serious look at your departmental management team, find out serious issues that they should need to know about and ask them on the spot, you will be sorely dissappointed, many times I was asked by my unit director to reply and pass the e-mail back on to her so that she could take credit for the work.

    I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    working with the staff, it was much part of the time a great place to work, a great place to develop myself.

    Cons

    weak opportunities to advance, to make a career, because the top management has changed, and they want to get younger employees, who don`t know how life in vodafone was.

    Advice to Management

    be more carefull with the employees, listen more to their needs, develop people in with they invested, don`t throw them away just because they do not recognise with some new managers with another vision.
