I have been working at FairPoint Communications full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good pay & benefits for the region, honest hard working staff.

Cons

Lack of enthusiasm for the business, market driven management, lack of clear overall direction. No fun (parties, etc etc)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide clear goals for middle management and staff. Focus on customer quality of services, consolidate the product line, get rid of old technology. Loosen up, and start acting like a startup.
