    Pros

    Good Compensation, Flexibility, and job opportunities across the nation for advancement.

    Cons

    For a communications company the communication between departments isn't good. Management promises the world and rarely delivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and do what you say, don't just keep having meetings promising the world every 3 months.

    I worked at Windstream full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is more than minimum wage. Depends on which state you live in and which company they took over. Offers health benefits, dental, vision.

    Cons

    The CEO's adgenda is all over the place. No job security. Benefits cost an arm and a leg. No upward movement. This company's profit comes from buying out small companies and then laying the employees off. They successfully discriminate on race, gender and class. No good for LGBT people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Couldn't help them if I wanted to. Management is ever-changing. Lead by example.
