A bit of a chaotic work place due to the size of the corporation.

Pros

Job security is somewhat better in the World's biggest telecoms company than say smaller competitors. Easy to stand out amongst the lesser talented colleagues. Excellent funding available to improve upon skills and education. Worldwide opportunities.

Cons

Easy to get 'lost' in a large corporation and not get noticed for promotions. Compensation is below industry average. Very chaotic organisation due to the legacy systems and merged entities making up the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward the people who make a difference with the right compensation instead of driving them away from the compnay, only to re-hire them at a later stage at well above average market rates.

    Pros

    The Benefits are great, the people working in the trenches are great. the product set is robust and very complete.

    Cons

    After the MCI acquisition, the company took on a "bankruptcy mentality" and they have been cutting costs and providing worse service ever since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop laying people off and invest in your people instead of trying to fix broken systems meant to replace people.
