Competitive benefits and compensation but poor management and culture.

Senior Telecom Engineer (Former Employee) Rapid City, SD

ProsThe salary and benefits are very competitive, and are actually better than most companies are. Good percent matching to 401K; good profit sharing plan; good health insurance.

ConsManagement (in IT) does not communicate well at all.
No training opportunities despite the opposite being referenced on its corporate and career websites.
No employee recognition and no team building processes.
The call center (customer service department) was also a low priority to management so there systems and processes are behind the curve in technology and ability.
Corporate management thinks that shareholder value is the absolute most important above all else (including quality customer service).
This is still a "good, ole boy company" and has not advanced along with 21st century ideologies; in other words, getting a corner office is more important than doing quality work and providing top-notch customer service.

Advice to Senior ManagementDiversify your management in executive and in IT to bring in modern skills sets and abilities. In addition, the effort placed on "corporate diversity" is laughable at best, and actually borders on incompetent. I recommend bringing in a (proven) outside consulting firm to assist the company in learning how to move into the 21st century, and realize that energy based on coal is not the only path forward.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
