Pros

Not many.... Large gym in Ashburn facility, 401k matching is decent

Cons

RIFs all the time, pressure, psychotic upper management. EVERYTHING revolves around stock price. Lousy way to run a company....upper management is heavily compensated in stock.

Advice to Management

Stop paying in stock and have some long term strategy. Stop RIFfing all the experienced management employees on the network side!

    Pros

    Was seen as one of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    1st and 2nd level Management are treated like the minority. We are losing more and more of our benefits each year.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more protective of their 1st level Managers. Understand that results are based on performance of union members and are affected by the economy as well.
