I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

* Too much of free time for fun activities like gossiping and going on 11am runs with co-workers.
* You get to stay in Paradise working for this company..

Cons

Where Do I begin.

* extremely poor and belligerent leadership.
* Business has no sense or idea about technology and are extremely incompetent when defining requirements for IT team
* Every individuals motive in this company is to keep their job safe, so they avoid innovation as much as possible as it upsets senior management and keep everyone's hands tied.
* No proper channeling of work to contract or Full time employees, Most of them get paid top dollar to just laze around and talk stories with colleagues.
* Extremely Poor and callous decision making while hiring full time employees for IT team, most of them don't know jack about anything and are hired just because they are "local", most of them get fired or quit within a year.

    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time

    Pros

    Good wages, free shirts and an on site gym. Some opportunities for interdepartmental job movement.
    Recently reported positive corporate earnings.

    Cons

    A recent decline in employee benefits. Although a stated environment of employee empowerment the action is employee indifference. Budget restraints on the TDM network in order to expand the IP network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinstate the education benefit at 100% of cost and on a voucher system. Give the employees a chance to transition into a new network.
