    Pros

    the job over all was not the worst over all the company had allot of growing to do with leaders and supervisors. the management was not bad at times i wondered if they knew what they were doing or what was going on. the environment was good, happy, and comfortable to go to every day. there was a major change in practice after the buy out weeding out allot of the over all hiccups in the company I’m happy as an employee. feel there should have been changes made prior to buy out.

    Cons

    favoritism lack of knowledge for the people that are in leading positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on the ethhics of the company leaders to show employers what a manager should do

    Alltel felt like family, maybe because I was there for so long. Or maybe I stayed so long because it felt like family!

    I worked at Alltel

    Pros

    The company culture was one of the best I have ever come across. Upper management took the stance that the higher you were in management the more more people you served. I really respected that. Every year they required employees to review their management team and they took the feedback seriously. No company is perfect of course, but Alltel really cares about their employees and their customers. I was let go when Verizon bought Alltel. I stayed on about 6 months after the buy-out and it was very clear that Verizon did not have the same company culture that I was used to with Alltel!

    Cons

    The only down side that I experienced was when I worked as a retail consultant and the hours were long and of course I had to work some nights and weekends and holidays, but that is the reality in any retail job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to respect your employees. A pat on the back goes a long way!

    I worked at Alltel

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, the pay was average for the position. Management was amazing as well as co-workers. Alltel gave you a warm, small business, family feeling even though they were a large corporation. Everyone that I knew from the company was proud to work there.

    Cons

    There was not any downsides to working there, I wish I could find a company as great as Alltel. They were bought out by Verizon and it just was never the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management staff was amazing, the corporate office was amazing. I actually knew many people on many different levels because we were so close to the corporate headquarters.
