    Pros

    Co-workers were great -- some of the smartest folks I've known. In my environment, at least, the schedules were flexible, telecommuting was allowed, and the benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    The pay was okay, but raises corporate-wide were small and scarce. Communication from upper-management was, as I saw it, a one-way street, and only the "good stuff" was communicated. If there was something less than stellar, I typically didn't hear about it until I read about it on some third-party web site. Everything seemed to be a secret.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up. Be up front with employees about what's going on. Secrets breed fear, and fearful people sometimes don't do things in the best interests of the company.

    Pros

    Business plans for Broadband and LTE in particular is good. Lots of good people working hard in these areas.

    Cons

    Senior leadership does not understand the value of retaining key talent. Decisions based on cost sacrificing quality are made quite frequently.

    Be more ethical. Let employee know before firing him especially when he is working from 2 years and sitting you in office and also gave 100% towards work irrespective of situation.
