    Pros

    Good colleagues, great enabler of the "cool stuff" and a potentially exciting industry

    Cons

    Most senior management are telco only and lack rigour of real leaders experienced elsewhere Its an industry - like tech generally - that has so far seen the "tech knowledge" people move forward to leadership, rather than people who truly possess readership ability. Biotech for example, would never make the scientist the leader just because they invented/understand the drug R&D at molecular level. ;)

    Advice to Management

    Clean out of very poor senior level is needed to avoid vodafone becoming a dumb pipe. Still people around who didn't believe in iPhone for example and causing huge market share slippage. Reward? Promotion. Lol.

    Pros

    Decent salaries comes with job security if you are a political animal. get to management level and they lack the fight to move on anyone ineffective so you can be well paid and lazy.

    Cons

    No customer focus, no employee empowerment, lumbered with process. Poor leadership with no understanding of how the world is changing around them

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Listen to your lower level employees and realise that you do not represent the typical customer, therefore decisions based on your opinion will not be right
