    I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vodafone has a great diverse work culture. Although they are a British firm, I worked with people from all over Europe (Germany, France, UK, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Greece) and Asia (most countries) just within my division. They have great processes for a lot of functions and are professionally run.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the planners of the US MVNO were not committed to buying market share (losing money) to establish their brand as an Enterprise-grade wireless provider. They could not compete with the Big 3 and ultimately had to shut down the Mobility division.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more long-term focus next time. TMobile required 5 years to get 100K connections on their network. Trying to get there in one (1) year was umm.. stupid.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and good benefits. Very flexible with personal needs and flex time for driving to and from the office. Strong brand in Europe and Africa.

    Cons

    Very European focused. Most better opportunities are filled with expats who move here or managed in EU (UK in particular). Tight deadlines and late nights are not unusual. More of centralized HQ in UK with each country as independent subsidiaries. Need more structure.

    Advice to Management

    Become truly global and strategic. Entering US Market & exiting in less than a year shows politics and knee jerk rash decisions often rule more than strategy. Don't assume EU is untouchable from decisions you make that impact global clients elsewhere. Also look to standardize more to make it easier to do business with and increase efficiency.

    I worked at Vodafone full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours with work from home opportunity. Great Benefits. International company with variety of career opportunities. Employees seemed to be an important asset to the company. They got the Work/Life balance and respected it.

    Cons

    Found structure to be unstable. Consistently reorganizing. Change can be a good thing, but in this case, it happened so often, you found yourself questioning who was on top of organization chart for your area now... as soon as you got that, it changed.
