Pros

If you plan on spending a long time with one company and want to build a long term career, this is a great place for you. The LDP program gives you lots of exposure to different projects. Once you become an "LDP" you are branded as someone who is a fast tracker and you will be tapped for various opportunities over your peers. Also has some great benefits.

Cons

Can be very bureaucratic (the downside of working at any large company). To succeed, you have got to have that "go-getter" attitude. Don't expect for anyone to hand you anything. If you want to advance in the company, be prepared to spend a lot of time in Dallas. Promotions are also sparse. The union is an absolute headache to work with. Unfortunately there is little you can do about this. Just put in your time with the management rotation, and quickly move on.

Advice to Management

While management has a good understanding of what's happening at headquarters, they fail to understand other parts of the US.

    Pros

    You can work with customers, union, non-union, move from network, call center, etc to IT & PM positions. If you put in the time & effort to continue your learning opportunities, they will allow you to demonstrate your new skills.

    Cons

    If you come in on a lower pay scale to get in the door, you may find it hard to get where you should be financially.

    Advice to Management

    Just because it's in your mind you told us, remember...maybe you didn't share it with the rest of us. ;)
