    Pros

    Good open door policy. Had a very supportive manager. Worked with several competent people across the different functions. Was given increasing job responsibilities and "promotions" during employment.

    Cons

    Disjointed Infrastructure means it often takes longer than it should to get something done. Was always surprised that something as simple as a standard process either had either not been created or not communicated to the company at large. Would always have to hunt around for the correct procedure. Would sometimes get very political. Felt direct senior management was disrespectful of time and efforts.

    Pros

    Perhaps things will improve after the MegaPath merger. There is a tuition assistance program, but only for undergraduate degrees and almost all jobs require a bachelors. There is a 401k plan but it is funded by the employees through high fund fees. Medical coverage is decent but I never really used it (fortunately).
    The private equity firm owner has deep pockets.

    Cons

    No focus on employee development, coercive and chaotic work environment. Unrealistic expectations from management based on scarce data and little employee input.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, let's see what happens.
