Pros

Decent pay and benefits, educational assistance. Can't complain too much about still having a job during the economic downturn,

Cons

Pay raises, bonuses and benefits aren't quite what they used to be. More difficult to get promoted withing the company nowadays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It wouldn be nice to hire more people to make up for people who leave a department and work on better integrating records systems.

    Pros

    The company provides stable employment and a fair salary. Their wellness program is OK but is there to supplement higher costs of purchasing health insurance. They do celebrate birthdays and anniversaries each month by providing a small treat as well as other modest activities to enhance the work environment. The experience for each employee is vastly different depending upon who their supervisor or manager is with some being low-key and others being high-strung and this is within the same room!

    Cons

    With the breakup of the former Alltel profit-sharing was phased out and fixed retirement contributions was also phased out. The company's 401K contribution only increased slightly therefore not offsetting these reductions in benefits. In addition the company's 401K contribution is only made once yearly instead of every paycheck further reducing the true value of their contribution amount and significantly eroding the power of compounding. The focus of training is now primarily on what's in-house and what will specifically help the company with it's day-to-day processes and functions rather than technical education necessary for the workers to provide the most efficient and technically correct response to situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a severe lack of communication from management director levels all the way down to the supervisory levels and many times the supervisors do not have the answers for even the most simplest questions. This needs to be fixed.
