Pros

Job security with decent benefits. Training is provided, if you request for it. Coworkers are there to assist you.

Cons

You can't get rid of the lazy, incompetent workers. No matter how hard or how little you work, you get the same pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect goes a long way.

    A good paying job that allows upward mobility, if desired, with no formal education.

    Pros

    Good pay, sick leave, anual leave, holidays. Mostly a clean safe environment. I was able to transfer several times between states. Many employment opportunities, once you are in the door.

    Cons

    The more you do the more that is expected. Still has the who you know mentality, when trying to advance. Heavily into promotion of females and minorities. Unions have too much power. Too many unions and managemnet associations, that get in the way of the business'or what is left of it. Not a very good careeer choice at the present.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better start working on human relations aspects. Being humiliated and beat up on telecoms is the norm. We are trying to keep up with less and less help each day. Dois and Csaw do not reflect the true nature of the workload and manpower. Stop having plants bury delivery on Mondays and the day after holidays. Even out the work flow.

    Pros

    Current senior management is very smart and very competent. Yes, we're in a bad place financially right now, but there are viable, long-term solutions on the table. Congress is clearly the road block at this point.

    Cons

    Not many cons to working here. Public perception is very out of whack with reality though, and it is sometimes tough to stay positive while "they" throw uniformed opinions and inaccurate facts around about our company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and don't give up. You're on the right track.
