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

    Pros

    none. Everyone in my department is looking for work elsewhere.

    Cons

    Since Windstream acquired my company, they have put me in a position that has nothing to do with my background and training (Network Engineer). They have me doing budgeting and finance work, but refuse to give me the proper training (or any training) to do my new job, They are only concerned with immediate profits and dividends, they are not concerned with having a stable network and happy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your technical engineers. When they are all dissatisfied, your business is not sustainable.

    Cons

    Mid management are all yes men/woman. No real leadership. Concerns and ideas aren't taken seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the front lines. Tell People when they aren't doing a good job. Tell people if they are management material or not, and if so put them on a career path.
