    Pros

    Strong VP level management with a desire to make things better

    Cons

    Weak west coast (Bay Area) network- everything is off-net and the need for 3rd party interconnection is required on all circuits sold. No data center presence. No data center connectivity. Local management is inconsistent with corporate philosophy of being above the line- does not happen at a local level. Sales are more important than integrity or ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the historical data- you have gone through 60+ sales reps in a short period of time. It can't be that all the reps were not good sales reps- culture counts, network assets count (you are a communication provider!)- why buy ATT through Windstream? Monitor local management to ensure that employee's are being treated equally.

    Pros

    Stable paycheck
    Decent benefits
    Easy to coast

    Cons

    Boring work
    No opportunity for advancement (financially or professionally)
    Company is publicly traded
    All of the good employees have left, leaving behind the mediocre and the consultants

    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.
