    I have been working at SBC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The folks I worked with over a 5 year period were like a family. Very nice, hard working, supporting.

    Cons

    At the time cost saving measure were 'save the penny, spend the pound'. Rather ludicrous when they cut housekeeping services and we actually had bugs rampant in our cubicle. Not to mention removing the vending machines in a large regional corporate building yet allowing personal coffee makers to be plugged into kitchenette outlets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Centralized organization and graphic BPO that is available to all vie intranet would be helpful. More transparency and less territorialism/insecurity would also help the culture.
