Not nearly as much bureaucracy as other larger companies I've worked for
No off-shoring of development that I'm aware of

Cons

Priorities shift constantly, making it difficult to actually complete a project.
Inter-departmental communication is not were it should be
Not sure how the Windstream merger will change the culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More consistent focus and buy-in from upper management on a single project would greatly improve everyone's ability to get things done.

    Pros

    Able to reach out to senior management if necessary. Good product selection to sell from.

    Cons

    Managers tend to micro-manage to the extent of being counter-productive. Manager are under extreme stress to make their numbers that it becomes a trickle down effect. There should be more positive, uplifiting ways to motivate rather then tearing down. A Salaried position means long hours but if you need to take a few hours off you are still expected to use PTO. 60 hour weeks with none of the benefits of being salaried.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working on a salary means some days you work more then others. If someone needs to go to the doctor give them the time if they are working 60 hour weeks instead of using PTO. Train the DSD's to be motivating in a positive way rather then a way that cuts people down. No one is motivated to perform when their manager tears them apart.
