Better than no job, but the personal cost and frustration is high.

Pros

Better than no job; nice campus; some groups are flexible with work hours and support work/life balance...but others patrol the aisles to see who is at their desk at 4:45 to identify who is leaving early.

Cons

Chaos, too many layers of management, frequently heard "just shut up and color" which means keep your mouth shut and just do what you are told...even if it doesn't make sense. MANY TIMES, it doesn't make sense and is the wrong thing to do. Frequent layoffs and reorganizaitons. Heavy testerone

    Pros

    So much talent around the company. Service is excellent once you get it turned up. A good deal of opportunity to move around the company and new experience.

    Cons

    Debt looms over the company's ability to fully invest in new projects, and product development. Future in enterprise but have limited meaningful fiber to the enterprise today. Top heavy. Starting to feel like the LEC.
