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

    Pros

    Some products (if they can be delivered) have promise. A few internal employees carry the weight of the organization.

    Cons

    Politics of the workplace lend towards a "blame culture." Lack of direction and focus is apparent and even less communication downwards. Training of staff doesn't extend below F band level - the meessage is "if you aren't F band there is no investment in you to become future management." Internal "boys club" mentality insures promotions only for the select few.

    Advice to Management

    The employee survey is not an indication of what is going on - you need to tune in and get close to your staff. Time to change up some of the E band management as their ideals don't fit in today's business world needs. Need to become more dynamic and less 'centralized process' - its choking off the true creativity that will push you forward.

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

    Pros

    Vodafone is progressive in its ways of working and benefits. In addition, the company has a thriving women in enterprise program that improves and supports career development for women and all employees.

    Cons

    Even though Vodafone is a global company the culture can feel disparate and disjointed which has an adverse affect on collaboration.

    I worked at Vodafone full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance, diversity, culture

    Cons

    Terrible MVNO selection and failure to gather intelligence from sales people on the front lines resulted in the shuttering of the group. Management survives and sales people lose their jobs, even though it was the fault of management.

    Advice to Management

    You hired the best minds in the industry to represent your company and failed to ask for their input. Shame on you.

    Amazing culture of dedicated and friendly people. They help build you up and get you going.

    The specific product we sold wasn't resonating with our customer base and was difficult to make competitive in the market.
