    I have been working at Windstream full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    a fast growing company with lots of potential. We could rule the telecom world if they get their process's straightened out.

    Cons

    went from building a strong network to following contractors and cleaning up their mess's. technicians always worried about their jobs and wondering why they don't use the talent that is in place and wasting money on contractors that 36 hours to run a couple fiber jumpers and charging $2600 to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the contractors and let your employes build the network. your techs can install test and turn up and would be the go to people for any questions pertaining to the network. if you use contractors you don't know what you have out there since you did not do the install and test and turn up its a crap shoot. To many micro managers and fear of losing your job.
