    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Cellco are the benefits, Human Resources support, salaries, and overall training. It is an interesting opportunity in that every team member has an opportunity to succeed as well as work in tandem for success. The quality of the products and services are excellent. Employees are encouraged to understand all new services and technology in order to become the best possible advocate. The training reinforces the importance of the brand as well as the belief it is possible to sale to anyone with the right questions and guidance. Cellco offers a great 401k program, great health care and tuition reimbursement. The training and orientation is excellent.

    Cons

    The downsides are contingent on where you are in terms of your life. If you have a growing family, the needs of the business are primarily on the weekend and evening hours. This can put a strain on family responsibilities as well as participation in life's events. it is important to note commissions can be a pressure driver in this business. If you are in a location where foot traffic is low, there is a greater chance of employee losing their unity as each individual works to attain his or her goal. The team effort can be lost and it is incumbent upon managers to foster team work.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the mandatory tie for male sales people and switch to standard khaki and polo.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is very good. Lots of sick, personal, holiday and vacation days, raises, bonuses, profit sharing

    Cons

    Career progression is non existent. Company follows a "union style" employment mentality, keeping dead wood long past the time to get rid of them. Raises are generally granted based on being alive, no such thing as a true merit increase. Same goes for bonuses. Performance reviews are a waste of time, never looked at. No recognition for performance that exceeds expectations. Company is filled with upper management that is clueless to technology, especially in IT dept.

    Advice to Management

    Current middle management is nothing but people coming to collect a check. Get good managers that will weed out the crap and find talented people, and reward performance.
