No opinion of CEO

I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Flexible working approach
- Left to manage own time and responsibilities where relevant
- Supportive middle management and access to training and progression (if proactively seeking it)
- Reasonable pay, although as always could have been better
- Good location (not in London, but still major global company)
- Great physical working environment and campus

Cons

- Internal system haven't followed the pace of growth within the company
- Sometimes to quick to focus on the quick win, rather than long term improvements
- Few pockets of long term employees who are a bit stuck in their ways, with a 'can't do' attittude
- Sometimes lack long term strategic vision, which can change too often, not giving the company enough time to get on board

Advice to Management

Improve the cons, stay focused on what is important and base activity and improvements off of data and customer feedback, rather than personal preference.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    challenging environment, now more international than before, high competitive.
    optimal to learn how to work in a changing environment, which was previously a start-up

    Cons

    a bit confused. there is the tendency to make a procedure for everything and a lot of time is spent to build up procedure instead of building up products for customers.

    Advice to Management

    continuously cutting investments is beginning to impact the quality offered to our customers.
