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

    Pros

    Career Development
    Good Management
    Global Travel
    Flexible Working
    People/Culture positive

    Cons

    - Systems which don't talk to each other, still use PPT & Excel and varying sources of data which don't match up, the amount of time and money spent to monitor data is shocking
    - The jobs are full on and they do expect their money's worth but they do reward those that work hard

    Advice to Management

    Better communication
    Invest in systems
    Stop employing consultants to fix core issues, there is no vested interest or long term focus
