    I have been working at Lightower Fiber Networks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is the only good thing that I can think of that's keeping me at this company.....

    Cons

    Engineering is not sized to support sales force.
    Engineering leadership is disconnected from day to day operations.
    Engineers have no yearly goal objectives.
    Roles with-in engineering lack clarity and overlap with other departments.
    Senior leadership is lead to believe, or choose to ignore issues with turning up new services - requires brute force each time to turn up an order.
    Only concerned with the monthly sales and revenue numbers.
    Lifeblood systems used to maintain inventory and service order delivery (CRM) is misaligned and flawed, consumes an enormous amount of amount of time each day.
    A layer 1 company, struggling to become a "big fish" as well as becoming a layer 2/3 company. Polar opposite to a Tier I Telco with too many processes, Lightower has too few processes.
    Integration issues between legacy systems and processes create in-efficiencies. Observed a limited effort to unify all staff.
    Limited training, after being told by hiring manager that it was encouraged
    Poor synergies between functional departments
    Poor moral - Engineering staff is burning out.
    Lack of team effort, lost opportunities to get functional areas on the same page, this should come from senior leadership
    Growing pains as the company tries to scale. Sometimes it's not clear who's making a decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management: align each departments roles/responsibilities, make an effort to get everyone one the same page.
    Advice to management: recognize and address the issues associated with internal systems required to build and inventory service orders.
    Advice to management: There are other departments besides sales to cozy up to, come on down to the dungeon sometime to get a fresh perspective on some of the challenges we have, Warren Buffett wont mind....
