The company I worked for prior to Windstream purchase was wonderful, Windstream definitely not.

Engineering Specialist Provisioning II (Former Employee) Evansville, IN

ProsTuition reimbursement
Laptops
Great people to work with locally.
Local management led by example
Locally great flow of information when available from corporate
Growing too rapidly leading to integration problems and employee morale issues.

ConsHealth benefits including, medical, vision, and dental were fairly priced.
A publicly traded company so you can own a piece of it.
Many different job openings in different locations throughout the US.

Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down. The rate at which you're acquiring companies lends itself to growing issues which can include lower employee morale.
Try to save employees because they are a wealth of information instead of trying to centralize everything. If someone is already doing a job and has been successful then consider leaving them in the position or ask for their help in making the company better. The purchased companies feel like failures.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
