    Pros

    Teach people about the job. Help build a relationship with the tech force helping them better themselves. Weekends off

    Cons

    Some travel away from family. Job demands a lot of attention to detail with a lot of prep time. Sometimes that involves working past hours.

    Pros

    Current Management really cares about their employees and customers. The company does a lot of socially responsible things including a goal for 0% carbon footprint in a number of years. Benefits are really good and work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Currently going through a proposed acquisition by AT&T. Likely the culture will change and low upward mobility will be even more limited outside of AT&T locations.

    Since starting with the Company about a year ago, I am not aware of any cons that I would warn candidates who are looking to find a job at the Company.

    Advise management to continue recognizing their staff for a job well done, providing opportunities for growth and development and taking the time to understand personal goals and helping staff to achieve those goals.
