Pros

Very good benefits with good holidays, bonus and sick leave which i never used! Its good being able to work on the latest developments in broadband and digital tv.

Cons

Its a pity that it has a very poor senior management culture which is a JFDI attitude and not very nurturing. If you really like expressing an opinion that is very different from others be very careful.

Advice to Management

Get some new ones! The older guys seem to think because the use the word cool that it makes them that way lol. Allow people to express their opinions and dont decide on an action and then pretend to seek views.

    Pros

    Exposure to variety of networking technologies and platforms
    Great enviroment in which to utilise your networking knowledge when troubleshooting.
    The team spirit is usually good due to the daily challenges and pressure to deliver to customers.
    Good place to get your 'feet wet' and learn on the job.

    Cons

    Too little time and resource was allocated to training and certification of staff.
    Career advancement is difficult without certification. Many people leave, only to return in better positions once they have gained qualifcations which the company appears to want but not pay for.
    Due to resource constraints there seems to be a tendancy for too much fire-fighting and not enough focus on fixing the underlying cause of issues via the service improvement process.
