    I have been working at Windstream full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My direct supervisor is the only reason I've stayed.

    Cons

    They will threaten your job every chance they get, instead of finding ways to motivate their employees. The quotas are completely unattainable, there were 12 out of 87 people who last month were able to get any kind of commission check. They are not flexible with time off/family emergencies/being sick/etc. No where to move up unless you are friends with upper management, hard work does not pay off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair. Listen to your employees and find incentives or other positive ways to motivate them, not threaten.

    I worked at Windstream

    Pros

    Windstreams salary was comparable to other places in the area.
    Windstreams benefits were comparable to other places in the area.

    Cons

    Only promoted those who brown nosed upper management.
    They have a college grad program that promises them management jobs within a 2-5 year period.
    I saw a guy go from college grad, to accountant I, II, Sr. then manager in about 2 years. Yes he was smart, but he skipped a lot of people in that time, even a supervisor with a master's degree who had trained him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The college program is great, however, it makes the other employees feel left out. Having a career goals for each employee and recognizing what positions employees want to be in and not just a "we're sticking you here" attitude, would make employees appreciate the company.
