Pros

Good, reliable employer. Decent pay. Good opportunity for promotion as many layers of management.

Cons

Long hours in the Accounting and Finance Organization. Frequent movement of staff between groups leads to loss of organizational knowlege.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work life balance should matter. Consider some version of comp time to account for the accounting cycle.

    I worked at Windstream full-time for 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.

    Technology company tun by accountants so very focused on balance sheet, cuts both ways
