Not a good place for an engineer

Market Engineer (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at Windstream full-time for more than a year

Prosnone. Everyone in my department is looking for work elsewhere.

ConsSince 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 Senior ManagementListen to your technical engineers. When they are all dissatisfied, your business is not sustainable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Learn how to differentiate talented people and give them incentive to want to stick around.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
