    I have been working at Windstream full-time

    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.
