    I have been working at Vodafone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a large organisation where you can have a whole and varied career, moving between roles and being given the opportunity to develop in new areas whilst maintaining your salary. In combination with Cable&Wireless that it acquired, it covers all aspects of telecoms.

    Cons

    There's no significant downside. As with any large organisation, roles and authority gets diluted. But equally, that means that empowerment gets distributed widely.
