Pros

PTO and paid holidays; work hard and it can pay off.

Cons

Many many management and organizational restructures in a small time (2 years).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many closed doors. When employees walk around the office, most managers doors are closed much of the time.

    Pros

    There are some nice people there

    Cons

    In my 25 years of working I have never seen such a messed up place. Almost every employee seems to be on the verge of snapping. Much of it comes from completely unpredictable behaviour and blindsiding..you don't know if there will be an ok day or if you will be escorted out the door before you can even get to your desk.
    My general feeling is even the most upper level managers are pawns in an international financial chess came and everyone else is just the chess board. Everyone is just watching the players being knocked off and moved around and waiting to come in to work one morning to hear that the company has been sold and that we will all be gone.

    I worked at Integra Telecom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I'm not sure that there were too many pros to working at Integra. I was able to get a lot of material produced in a short time, but that wasn't due to any Integra benefits.

    Cons

    The decentralized model made everything 10 times more complicated than it needed to be, and senior management was barely engaged so as to be ineffectual at organizing anything and keeping projects on track. When they acquired Eschelon, they laid off the most competent employees in an effort to make themselves look good, which was a huge detriment to the merged company.
