    Overall, a good company to work for, better before AT&T

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe job has decent pay, good benefits, and opportunity for overtime. Most of the time you are allowed to run your job.

    ConsCriteria relating to job performance is driven by folks that know little about the job itself, based on need for numbers, not need for customers

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet real real numers to work with while evaluating employees; there needs to be a committment to the devewlopment and training of the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsBig budget projects

    Treated employees well
    Job security (until AT&T)
    Interesting industry (telcom, internet, wireless, TV)

    ConsHighly conservative "corporate" culture

    Some deadwood employees... but most OK

    Advice to Senior ManagementHope Duane Ackerman is enjoying the new island he purchased with part of his $$ multi-million golden parachute. Thanks Duane for helping turn the telcom industry into a near monopoly via heavy consolidation/mergers and blowing up thousands of jobs for real people.
