    Pros

    Great company atmosphere, opportunity to move to different departments and climb the ladder.

    Cons

    As a associate analyst, you have to wait a year before you can transfer to another position. Raises are on a yearly basis, and not guraenteed.

  3. Used to be a great place to work, Then a corrupt management took over that has since been removed

    Give all those good employees that were wrongly terminated under the corrupt management their jobs back.

    Pros

    The company is well organized.
    The people I dealt with (in IT) were knowledgeable and friendly.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    The challenge dealt with the fact that the company for which I was working was purchased by Windstream, and ultimately my position was eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    You should have taken a harder look at the employees you displaced to see if they were in a fit in different areas/locations.

  6. Hope management can turn it around

    Pros

    Flexible manager, generally good work environment, opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Worried about future of company, some executives place heavy pressure on those under them, hours in some business units are excessive

    Advice to Management

    Reward your top performers, don't reward employees only because they are in the leadership program. Push top-line revenue and hold sales leaders accountable.

    Pros

    You get broad exposure to a lot of areas of the law. You have a lot of independence in getting your work done. As long as you produce good work product, work will continue to be sent your way.

    Cons

    Not as much fellow employee contact as I would have liked. The desk for law clerks when I was there was basically in a closet.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company more to your law clerks.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, Worked under some good managers during my tenure here. Ability to really be successful. The perks of attending football games, baseball games, and national events are great. If you enjoy cold calling and networking this is the place for you..

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but it's not bad. Telecom is Telecom and it is always changing, plus ATT and Comcast are sooo bad but soooo cheap that business owners still use them, so it's hard to sale because we can't compete with their pricing or the name recognition.

    Advice to Management

    For management, it's tough to say....try keeping a manager in a branch for longer then a year. I've had 2 managers going on my 3rd in 1 year.

    Better training.

    Pros

    Bringing resolutions when engaging with Enterprise customers faced with current or pending issues...customer satisfaction is key. Our Account Executive Team is second to none in this industry. Technology is progressive, so always look to improve skill-set in order to better assist customers. This is truly a great company.

    Cons

    Inconsistencies with pay, promotions and procedures. Unforeseen layoffs occur at times. Recently 300 people were laid off with little to no notices given.

  10. a Great opportunity for hands on devices control the backhaul for the major wireless carrier in USA
