Great Benefits, Unreasonable Expectations

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Broomfield, CO

ProsBenefits are good. Deductibles are low, work out at work. People are great, for the most part.

ConsThe new program of bringing in people through the academy is not well thought out. Training once you're in rotation is slim and you have to pick things up on your own. Not exactly a recipe for success.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain people better. The academy is a good idea, but training people for the position they are moving into in a deeper way is much more important. Especially when you're bringing in people who have never worked a day in the telcom industry.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Much learning opportunities for people who does not have experience. Cons: Too many to say.. The industry is declining, they can't cover the decline in margin with their revenue growth, so the only way to go… Advice to Senior Management: Nothing I can say.... even when I was working in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
