    Pros

    Dedicated colleagues and decent benefits. Attempts were made to engage employees. Fast paced and everyday was different.

    Cons

    Corporate strategy lacking. Even though the industry was changing, it felt the C-suite was always comparing their moves with Comcast, TWC, and Charter.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on being innovated and give customers what they really want! And don't worry so much about what the other broadband cos are doing.

    Pros

    Fitness center, movie theater, full service cafeteria and catering. Plenty of corporate of corporate discounts

    Cons

    Promotions are not based on ability and potential, but rather who they favor at the moment. Environment can be hostile. Minorities are overlooked, and or the first to be layed off.

    Advice to Management

    Inclusion saves companies.
