Wonderful place to work

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Providence, RI

ProsExcellent team to work with, lots of support from others in the office
Good work / life balance
Motivation from management to set everyone up for success
Salary / compensation is fair by industry standards
Opportunities to advance quickly within the organization based on hard work
Confident knowing that we have a solid network with unmatched customer service

ConsThe CRM (Soon this will be fixed, though! Excited for the update)
Difficulties in transitioning are still being felt from last year's acquisition of PAETEC

Advice to Senior ManagementEvery office is managed differently, so I can only speak for our office but I will say that so far it is clear that we have tenured, motivational leaders to encourage success. The cons are fixable and are not to be taken as harsh criticisms, simply being realistic and this is how everyone seems to feel. There is a very customer-centric group mentality which is key to profitability, so as a sales person this is very relieving. Overall, my advice is to simply continue investing in your employees now that you are (seemingly) finished with major acquisitions for a while. Transitions from an acquisition can be difficult to manage, especially across a company of over 15,000 employees; that being said, I recognize the fact that you are actually doing a terrific job. Keep it up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
