Pros

Pays well, on site gym, nice campus, Many caring and wonderful people

Cons

Huge debt causes short attention span, never finish one thing before you go to the next. This often results in redoing things later

Advice to Management

Be less desperate. Open opportunities to people from all of the companies, not just your old cronies from OK.

    Better than an ILEC, but that's not a high bar

    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 Management

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