What are the best and worst things about your company?
Vodafone is a huge and prominent global corporate. The experience I am gaining working here enables me to see how the company works on an international basis. The Vodafone Way of Working encourages a work-life balance. I am encouraged to complete my work to a really high standard, but at the same time I can take an hour out to use the gym, or the other on site facilities. I can fit the work around my lifestyle. The networking opportunities are great. Members of the company from graduate to senior leadership team level are keen to spend the time to network and support you in the business. This is really beneficial for my career development.Not based in central London. Business changes can mean that you are not doing the exact job on the graduate job description. However this also means that you are exposed to other areas of the business - beneficial for rounded experience.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The company has great work benefits and flexible work empowers employees to have more flexible working hours. Communication could be more specific and to the point.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people are really nice, the grads are given great exposure across the business and the company offers flexible working.Lots of jargon and acronyms which can be confusing at first.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The flexibility of working styles and the flat hierarchy - networking is a lot easier.Some lack of organisation regarding the placements themselves. Some placements were not expecting to have graduates or some do not provide the guidance/mentoring expected in this programme.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
There are many excellent things about working for Vodafone and the Graduate Scheme. 1. Better Ways of Working. This basically means you can work from wherever, any Vodafone office in any part of the world, or even from home. In the Vodafone buildings there are very few dedicated desks, even the CEO sits at a shared desk in an open plan office. This gives a great sense of community at work. 2. Scope. Many people don't realise the breadth of opportunities a global company like Vodafone can offer. Although there is the chance to work in nearly any part of the world, I don't mean geographical opportunities. The company offers a huge array of different roles to suit nearly anyone and is a great way to discover what you want to do.As with any job in any company, there are some negatives. One of these is that Vodafone employs over 100,000 people worldwide, which makes standing out a challenge. There are always opportunities to prove yourself but you need to be really pro-active to ensure you don't blend in with the crowd. Personally this challenge helps me to be more pro-active. Also there are currently some negative connotations regarding Vodafone as a customer orientated company in the UK. As a Vodafone Group employee, my focus is on the UK no more than any of the other operating companies around the world, however living in the UK does attract friends and family to push you for a better service.

Flexible working, open and friendly environment.Not based in London. It is a very large company so sometimes you just feel like you're not contributing much.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The working style across the company is very unique and effective. It's a Google style atmosphere, in terms of policies and working life, for the most part. It is definitely a results driven business which is effective but also means you have the flexibility to a degree for working hours, location, working from home. The facilities available in the HQ are extremely good. There is a Starbucks or Costa in every building, there is a main canteen which has at least 5 different cuisines every day. There is also a smaller canteen that also sells hot food and is ideal for a quick lunch. The free buses exclusively for employees is ideal for anyone that moves to the area but can't drive. It is a large company and so sometimes things can take longer to happen than in a smaller company as there are different levels of approval and lots of things happening at the same time. Variety is encouraged, pre-determined on the graduate programme, meaning if you are set on a particular area of business or particular role you won't really get the opportunity to specialise.

Opportunities to work in different areas of the business.Complexity of the company, frustrating as it can be hard to make significant change as so many stakeholders are involved.
