    Pros

    Company is growing, so it's an interesting time to be a part of it. There is an onsite gym and cafe. The gym is free to employees and contractors. It's an interesting business and always fun to get in insider's look at how the towers and telecomm business works.

    Cons

    IT management functions using the clique method. If you're not in the clique, you won't last here. The politics are juvenile. Contractors are treated very differently from full timers right down to the most mundane things. There is little work-life balance, particularly for contractors. No working from home for contractors. Management will tell you that the policy is no working from home, and then they will work from home the next day. There are a number of very good FTEs here that have left because of management's policies. Those left aren't as strong, and the contractors seem to have more experience and knowledge than the FTEs in getting the job done. But FTEs have a stronger 'voice' when it comes to decisions. Contractors are more like trained monkeys, even though they prove to be better than the FTEs. Projects tend to be date-based instead of quality based.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should take a closer look at how the IT area is managed. And look at why good employees are leaving, and contractors grumble about not wanting to accept extensions or conversions with the company.
