    Pros

    Lots of great people. Senior management realistic about the need to shift to new revenue sources and willing to invest (like CTL Technology Solutions). Also among the best (not perfect) at integrating acquisitions in the telecom industry, at least for similar-type businesses. Emphasis on community involvement.

    Cons

    As usual with telcos, legacy infrastructure and processes consume way too many resources. Tough to advance into director/VP level from the ranks - VPs seem immune from poor performance or team turnover issues.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from the exodus of mid-level talent that your VPs must perform or move on. Continue supporting CTS, and integrate their mindset to the broader organization.

    letting our jobs go out of the country and closing our call center was the wrong thing to do no matter how much money it saved

    Management lacks direction, and makes immature decisions. Lots of group-decision making, and direction changes. Accountability is also lacking. Lack of remote working opportunities.

    Better established roles & decisions, hold people accountable.
