    Worse Company Ever

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) King of Prussia, PA

    ProsCo-workers were great, flexible schedules, ability to work from home a few days a week, decent medical benefits

    ConsLack of vision, advancement is non-existent after outsourcing of multiple departments to the Philippines, selective enforcement on several rules for the selected few, rampant nepotism. Same people won awards year after year, ( all while being held to lower standards, than the rest of the group). Had a group that was supposed to peers, however they were rewarded with titles and much higher starting salaries, based on who they knew. If a friend of yours is a manager here and brings you in, you're in good shape, If you are fresh out of college or applying blindly through a website, run as fast as possible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInformation is very secretive and not easily obtained, which leads to an environment of distrust. When workers find out the truth, from other departments or by accident, we no longer trust or respect management. Adults can handle bad news.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Broadview Networks gave me a chance to expand my knowledge and experience in WAN networking

    Data Repair (Former Employee) King of Prussia, PA

    ProsI was given the opportunity to learn about LAN/WAN/MPLS and firewalls with no previous experience and start my road to my Cisco certification

    ConsWorking with other departments was always a challenge while working there, and the relationship with the vendors and service partners was strained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut more emphasis and concentration on your employees, vendors, and service partners instead of concentrating only on the bottom line.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a bad place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsRoom for growth if you work hard, organized outside activities and luncheons to help create a familia environment. Many good people within the organization. Benefits average, these days nothing in free... Casual work environment

    ConsMaybe too many acquisitions too soon, caused bankruptcy.. Need more training in all areas; not just sales. Why so few woman in Upper Management? Sent CS oversees, did it really benefit company, customers?

    Advice to Senior ManagementSales is not the only department, yet the only ones praised and awarded. Town Hall meetings good, but you need to show your face more often and talk with your employees. Mike Robinson good guy, but need to shake it up with Officers management. bc

    sub-standard benefits and no matching retirement

    Account Executive (Current Employee) King of Prussia, PA

    Prossmall setting/family like environment. initial assistance, then none at all.

    ConsExtremely hard to sell services from a former chapter 11 company....businesses do not want any part of that stigma. paying over $480 a month for menefits is ludacris; and they are sub-standard benefits

    Advice to Senior Managementlack of leadership skills due to lack of experience

    Look elsewhere

    TSM (Former Employee) King of Prussia, PA

    ProsAll non-management staff is awesome. Sales managers are great to work with (not for).

    ConsUpper management doesn't care about anyone including each other. Sales is a revolving door. Training is horrible. If it's the only job u can get, then take it. Otherwise, keep looking. Claimed bankruptcy - crawled out of it. Still crawling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHealthcare is too expensive. Raises are nice every once in a while. Get to know your people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
