    Pros

    Had a great group of guys I worked with .

    Cons

    When it was cricket and not cricket at the old cricket had alot of foolish leadership issues spending, communication was very bad. Ceo was a joke had people in management positions that had no business in the company. The reason cricket failed as a company was the big wigs were spending foolishly on stuff we didn't need rather then spending it on the network to build a stronger company.

    Advice to Management

    Spend wisely make sure the network is taken care of. I no att will help cricket now.

    Fun atmosphere. Good commission. Attainable goals.
