    I have been working at Cincinnati Bell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay.Work-life balance is great! People are the best part of the work day. Many opportunities for additional training, but seldom used. Customer still seems to be top of mind for everyone involved. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Too many "silos," still operating under a monopoly mindset in some cases. Additional training is seldom used/encouraged due to broken processes. Many stresses, too many work-arounds, and too often doing what it takes to make things work, rather than what's right, because of lack of support/involvement/direction from within. A fear of losing your job for speaking up, and telling the truth...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more connected to mid-lower level employees to see what it's really like to work here. The direction is positive, but pick one, and stick with it. People feel overwhelmed to accomplish the lofty goals put before them, and become less engaged when they aren't recognized for them. The culture shift that is being performed may take generations to breed out before it can be fully realized. Stay the course, but become candidly connected with the people doing the work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cincinnati Bell.

    Interview Details

    The interview process seemed disorganized -- for starters, the hiring manager was 25 minutes late for our first meeting -- but the position sounded promising. Eventually, I received a verbal offer from the hiring manager. Someone from HR was supposed to call me the next day with the formal offer. Nobody called. After a month of no word, and no answer to my calls or emails, I received the official, "You didn't get the job." I asked for an explanation, but received none.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview questions were all normal and the conversation was very collegial.   Answer Question
