Does Vodafone offer dental insurance?

Pros

Great company benefits, especially regarding health (income protection insurance, dental insurance, critical illness insurance), etc.

Cons

So many I don't know where to start... Here's a brief list: - No work/life balance - 20% of people do 80% of the job, and 80% of people don't do their jobs at all - Most political place to work. If you want to have a career, prepare yourself to non-sense choices and to see people progress not based on meritocracy, but other factors - You will hear a lot of promises, but in 99% of the cases they will never be delivered. - Teams get hired due to lack of resources, even if they are not the right people for the job. This turns into having entire teams being lazy, staying on their phones, not turning up at work because they got drunk the night before, being extremely late for work, calling sick for a week because you denied holidays for business reasons and so on. No support from the company in getting rid of those individuals, at least not in human times. But if you're a manager, you get to work incredibly harder than you should because of all of that. - Systems that never work. As a consequence, customers will shout straight at your face and will abuse you daily, sometimes even physically. - The company bully you asking to be accountable, but it doesn't lead by example and uses excuses to not pay you bonuses, or to get out of uncomfortable conversations about many other wrong things they come up with. - No mental health adjustments. They drive you insane at first, but once you get sick you will be looked at like the one who does not want to work. - Huge levels of stress. No support from most line managers. - Lack of empathy - You will do a lot of overtime, but just won't get paid for it nor given time back if you're a manager, as it's not allowed. - In some stores, store managers don't even do their job, don't show up, or simply run their own private business from the back office using their phones, rather than doing the job they are paid for (running their own store). If you want to be an assistant manager, pray to end up in a store that has a manager with morals, because not all of them have morals. - You're a slave, not more than that. Prepare to be treated as such and to receive calls at any time of the day/night to talk about the silliest things about your work, or simply to argue with your manager about things you probably don't even have responsibility for. I could continue for ages, but I better stop otherwise the list would be too long. WORST PLACE TO WORK EVER. Avoid if you care about yourself and your mental health.

Advice to Management

Stop feeling like you work for the Queen, get your bums out of the offices and come and see what store managers and regional managers hide from your sights during store visits, that will give you an understanding of why you have such a high amount of people going sick for mental health. Also, hire mental health professionals to go around stores periodically and evaluate the level of toxicity of your workplaces and PREVENT people from becoming sick in the first place.

Does Vodafone offer parental leave?

Pros

Good competitive pay, excellent working from home facilities, great maternity leave plans. Flexible and lots of internal mobility.

Cons

very large company, so all the standard issues - there are lots of different systems, everything takes a while to do, there are always different sources of data etc. Have taken a keen interest in the BLM movement and are teaching seminars on allyship in the workplace, but none of the senior management are POC.

Advice to Management

Hire some POCs.
