Can you hear me now ...

Supervisor - Network Operations (Current Employee) Hampton, VA

ProsThe FiOS product will revolutionize broadband and the ways and media we are entertained by.
Company does truly embrace diversity.

ConsTop heavy corporate structure, I am a first level, with 9 bosses up to the CEO ...
Old "phone company" mentality, this dinosaur philosophy will not lead, follow, or get the heck out of it's own way.
Far to many problems with system integration - trying to make new systems work with legacy systems, and systems from bell mergers. Ridiculous the amount of time and money spent on band aids for provisioning systems.
Reduction in force - while its necessary at times, its far too easy to pull that trigger to meet the bottom line.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your hands dirty, rock the boat. You want to work smarter, turn over every rock in this company to fix what is broken, eliminate the duplication of effort. Get rid of the status quo if they can't change to meet the demands of emerging markets. Change the corporate culture. It's not enough to send out quarterly updates, a few webcasts and conference calls with catchy phrases or imperatives that look good on paper but amount to little more than lip servce. Get in the trenches and inspire people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
