    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.
