Advice to ManagementAdvice

I worked for NuVox, before Windstream acquired them. The merger killed the somewhat enjoyable environment that Nuvox had fostered.
In the interest of full disclosure, I honestly know nothing about truly running a company. But maybe stop buying so many companies and successfully integrate the ones you already have. It may make the investors happy to keep growing like that, but it doesn't seem to be a very sustainable business model.
