I have been working at Cincinnati Bell full-time for more than a year

Pros

I have been treated very well here. Fair comensation for my work, great about merit based pay increases. Lots of work to do, and a lot of good people. The company is actually growing and developing new tech/offerings for it's clientele which is pretty exciting to see. Its actually becoming a better and better place to work since the CEO Jack Cassidy was replaced by Ted Torbeck.

Cons

Like many jobs there are a lot of politics involved in a lot of the departments. This seems to be related to quite a bit of acquisition that the company has been doing for several years now and while it is tapering out it still exists. Because of this there are times when projects really need to be started or completed and can't be due to resources being shuffled around various places.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Bell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Had some great individuals
    Great opportunities to learn

    Cons

    Excessive downsizing, management is being strectched (60+ hours a week is normal)
    Culture is a "gotcha" mentality, can get a bit catty. Trust is gone from a decade of stripping the cash of one group to pump into a company to get ready to sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit stripping core business to pump other areas, quit making one group a success at the expense of everyother business unit. Everyone wants to succeed, quit blocking success.
    Quit the layoffs

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
