    Pros

    A stepping stone to better jobs in the Telecom Industry

    Cons

    Not a performance based culture. Hiring from the outside is preferable to promoting from within. Does not promote diversity. Extremely political where employees are watching their backs vs. taking actions in the best interests of customers and shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    More with less eventually leads to less and less!

    Micromanaging

    You have to pay attention to improve the management, especially for the new business. Otherwise, you keep losing the good people to fail the business.
