Go here if you don't care

Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGreat benefits. Flex time offered. Probably good if you are in audit or IT division, both of which have relatively new leadership.

ConsZero leadership, lousy communication (an anonymous intranet portal to the CEO is NOT communication). No vision, no strategy, just a mostly good-old-boys network run by the COO. Leadership and operations divisions are all run by VPs who have been at USAC for at least a decade. Competence definitely not rewarded (at least not in my division). If you care about the mission, this is not the place for you. If you are good at going along to get along (just give me the lousy paycheck and let me leave at 4:15), you'll love it here.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet new leadership. These guys have been there too long. You can't blame everything on the FCC.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
