Pros

Encouragement of professional growth and opportunities to advance and gain experience in a variety of functional areas. I appreciated the challenges and opportunties to learn. In addition, I always felt like I was treated with respect and felt that the work environment was very positive. Teamwork was encouraged. Training was readily available and encouraged for all departments.

Cons

Bureaucratic structure with roadblocks that hamper productivity, at times. The organizational structure and approval processes made accomplishing tasks a slow process. Also, the presence of politics was prevalent within some departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My main piece of feedback would be for management to promote more open feedback from varous levels within the company.

    Pros

    Great industry to be in, everyone has a cell phone. Compensation is there if you are willing to work for it, or have the sales skills necessary. It's a good atmosphere to work in, the store I worked in was mainly college students and or people in their mid 20's with the few exceptions of 40 year olds. Cool people.

    Cons

    Retail hours, and micromanagement. You also have quarterly reviews that are a headache to deal with when the came in to your store and watch you like a hawk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to micromanage so much. If there is a skilled sales person that is successful with their techniques let them use them, don't try to change everyone.

    Pros

    Alltel is a fortune 251 company that kind of experience can be invaluable for future endeavors. There are a lot of established processes and that allow for a more efficient governance of business application thereby increasing ROI, minimizing duplication of efforts and streamlining efforts.

    Cons

    Alltel is very much a "good 'ol boy" type company and if you're not in the right 'click', it can be very tough to get ahead. Lack of career path and career development is very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    include senior and consultant level employees in leadership development and provide people with career paths and opportunities to grow.
