Good environment, smart people, some challenges but always feels like "home"

I have been working at Integra Telecom full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Big enough to allow you to do your job without politics affecting everything you do; small enough to know everyone you work with and appreciate them. Good pay and benefits. Relative stability. Lots of stuff to get involved with that can keep you from boredom.

Cons

New leadership wants a more corporate feel; has made some really foolish decisions without fully understanding the culture (or caring to understand it). Constant changes that seem to be messing with our bottom line and not given time to prove out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow the changes. Rome was not built in a day...but y'all can sure as hell burn it down in one! Let things settle a bit. Also, stop hiring every single leaderhsip position based on a Level (3) background. It looks disingeneous and also raises questions about our ability to move forward based on the last 18 months of results.

    Pros

    Co-workers, network, aggressive, nimble, new products, attempting to innovate, fiber builds, loyal customer base from original brand name.

    Cons

    Change, change, change, and more change. No momentum can be created. Level 3 and CLINK we are not and that is all our leadership knows. Every competitive advantage Integra had in the good old days is long gone. Old Integra is sorely missed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Three years in a row, new plans, new focus, new rules, new leadership, and trust has been lost. Stop making changes. Go back to 4 years ago as it worked much better.

    High turnover, fearful employees, no PTO.

    Care more about employees than the bottom line and you'll see the bottom line rise.
