Pros

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

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Train 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.

    Pros

    - Intelligent, talented and hardworking colleagues

    Cons

    - I didn't feel like people were working together as a team. I felt like they were pitted against each other.
    - Extremely complicated projects with very little direction or training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a corporate culture that values sharing information and knowledge. Create wikis, training portals and reward team members for teaching and sharing with others.

    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 is by reduction in cost. Lay off is the theme of every year. If you are a professional with talent, this is not your place. There is no place for professional growth. People who advances are only people who are close to the senior management. Sad to see so many talented and good employees left, and good managers got fired. Those that are left have their own reasons to stay.

    The song they kept praising is... you have to be efficient, productive, and loyal to the company. However, there is nothing that they give in return for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing I can say.... even when I was working in there none of the good suggestions are listened.
