    Pros

    They have the largest network in the world so you receive exposure to a lot of different case studies and every kind of outage that can occur. If you are self motivated and very quick study, you can become a world class network engineer and move those skills into any network and become really great.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is terrible. They do not foster learning and operate in a very haphazard way. If you don't know something you will be afraid to ask because you will be belittled for not knowing it. Gossip among the "in-crowd" has caused alot of really good engineers to leave your employ because of a false sense of entitlement and backstabbing. To get started in the network is a nightmare of red tape. It is a real "boys club" where u have to be "liked" to get ahead regardless of talent. Extremely prejudicial against Spanish speakers. Worked more and paid less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Correct your managements attitude about subordinates and foster a more open environment to learning. New technologies are coming out everyday and NO ONE can know everything. Also being friends should not be a criteria for promotions. Reward your most prized network people to encourage more Spanish speakers to join your organization. I have discouraged anyone I know from working there. One friend did not head me advice and he worked for you for a week and took a lesser salary just to leave your employ.

    A challenging work environment in which personal loyalties are often rewarded over job performance.

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn and work with some talented individuals. When times were good, pay raises and bonuses were awarded annually. A decent 401k plan.

    Cons

    Department managers did not always reward performance. There was no such thing as a "safe" environment to express your disagreements or concerns with their management style or any issues you had with how the department was run. Managers used company layoffs as a means of weeding out anyone who didn't share their views.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The VOE is not a safe tool for employees to express their true feelings without fear of reprisal, and effective change will never come as a result of it.
