    Good Place to work, bad place to have a career

    I worked at Mitel Networks

    Pros

    The pay was excellent for my region and benefits were the best I have found. Medical/Dental coverage was incredible for my family. Work Schedule flexibility was a major plus and being able to work from home was a tremendous advantage when kids were sick and had to stay home

    Cons

    No job is safe. Upper management tries to portray a very happy work environment telling the employees what they want to hear but at the same time planning the next round of layoffs. When Mitel took over Inter-tel they didn't take the proper steps to ensure that Direct Branch sales weren't competing with Dealer markets in the same areas and as a result almost all Direct Branches have been closed causing alot of good, talented, dedicated employees to be let go.

    Management is not very forthcoming with any information and what they do publish makes no sense. They are looking more at saving money than making money, the technology is struggling to keep up with the rest of the market, except in the case of the 5000, and as a result Share prices are strugelling to stay above 2.50 a share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should've paid more attention to the making money with the direct branches and less on where you could cut costs. What would've been a very profitable merger has turned into a debacle of layoffs and unnecessary competition between you and your dealers.

    Pros

    Winston-Salem is not the corporate office so you don't have to deal with all the politics.

    Cons

    Not being at the corporate office you have very little influence for change.
