I have been working at Vodafone full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

At the moment the company is more human than an American company. Let's hope will stay the same.

Cons

Among many changes management forgets to think about the employees. It is said employees are important but it can't be recognised. No salary increase if your salary is near to the benchmark. Yearly bonus went very low. And people without proper people management skills can become managers which is the main root cause of miss-evaluating employees.

Advice to Management

Consider more that employees are not always stupid. Not only talk but do something for emplyees: they can gain more income. Focus more on right manager recruitment and training.

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

    Pros

    An excellent brand that is at the centre of a very exciting industry. Good development from a training perspective with a great deal of focus on people managers acting as supportive coaches.

    Strong company vision and strategy with integration of CWW making the proposition very strong.

    Cons

    Back office systems are clunky, sales team resource bias against support team meaning there is a slow turn around on sales proposals. Company is perceived as being arrogant but its not. Its just very big and doesn't find it easy do anything custom. The business is built on driving scale.

    Very tough commission scheme means its hard to over achieve against targets and earn big.

    Work life balance isn't great due to high workload.

    Advice to Management

    Remove barriers to success for employees. Get under the skin of work life balance and work on appropriate compensation versus industry peer group.
