    Pros

    Co-workers are very nice. Unlike the rest of Vodafone, VTMP still retains low cubes and has not yet gone to LAN tables. Modern building located 2 exits East of Danbury, CT. Head of Vodafone Americas makes appearances periodically for "town hall" meetings and "road shows". Vodafone makes a good effort to keep employees informed about company business. While some teams are working on tough projects and or having staffing issues, much of the office does not stay much after 5pm. Workers are issued nice laptops. Up until the past year had good work-from-home discretion. Work from home is now by manager approval and is generally granted as requested. More accommodating than other large companies regarding family obligations.

    Cons

    VTMP is the final form of a merger between two existing smaller telecom expense management companies, and acquired by Vodafone. As such, VTMP is still having some pains from the merger. Many of the co-workers with extended experience are contractors, and therefore are not around for very long. Or, contractors' recommendations have trouble getting seen, let alone considered. VTMP could do more to work on how they work, and create more maintainable products and systems. Job requirements are a little off compared to the actual job. Some skills or software requirements listed are actually not in use nor required. Proprietary and other systems can be a little difficult and quizzical. Internal jargon very different from other companies and industries, and in some cases the telecom industry itself. Some teams experienced frequent management changes. Some of the management does not work at the Connecticut location.

    Advice to Management

    Consider being more above-board regarding product limitations with stakeholders. Continue progress on morale initiatives. Pay a little bit more attention to regional needs.

    Pros

    There is diversity within Vodafone and there is the chance to get to laterally connect with many different departments and countries.

    Cons

    There are problems with being heard or respected at Vodafone. There are clicks in upper management like old boys club. It can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Change the portals for communication. It's widely accepted to not say anything for fear of repercussion or backlash.

    Pros

    Global brand, financial stability, network

    Cons

    US team is not well led. Priorities and support are poor.

    They lack clear goals and products and services that work in all countries.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver what you say you will. Get in the field with customers.

    They talk a good game but can't deliver or have knowledge how to run a sales team.
