    Its been a mixed bag. The Telecom industry is very competitive so the focus becomes too short term.

    I have been working at MTS Allstream full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The teleworking option is great.
    There are a lot of very great people here wiling to go the extra mile to deliver customized solutions for clients. It can be very exciting to deliver such unique products.

    Cons

    Teleworking has sometimes been used as a lever for performance management, this approach seems to come more from paranoia than reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the long term. I think they have started on that path recently but we have changed direction often in the past so hopefully we stick to this.
    There is still a sense of privilege with the level of management. Make sure you empower the right people to make customer affecting decisions otherwise you are just like the big Telcos.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MTS Allstream.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer was under the impression I was applying for Customer Service rep. Wrong! His colleague made a mistake. Adapted the interview for Technical Support Rep role. Interviewer was willing to share his personal experience with the company, describe opportunities for advancement and development, open door policy, etc. Very nice and welcoming, not a standard job interview pattern.
