    Former Employee - Sales in Frisco, TX

    I worked at GENBAND full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was very good but that was carried over from Nortel
    Great working level people

    Cons

    Moved from a 400 to 2200 employee company but did not change many of the processes so logic was to go figure it out yourself.
    Work load was crazy with 70+ hour work weeks and was getting worse
    Could not move the Network Transformation past the Tier 3 market with little competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and take action from the most experienced and not on market trends
    Try "Undercover Boss"

    I worked at GENBAND full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    fitness room in Plano & Frisco, finance has monthly fajita lunch, day off for community service, some great people at the lower levels

    Cons

    no value for individuals, mgmt as a whole lack people skills and decision-making ability, revolving door for workers-good people keep leaving, too many consultants, spending goes unchecked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on getting financially healthier and not just bigger. Curb the spending and compensate your employees based on the co size and market. Flatten the organization-too many layers.
