    I have been working at XO Communications full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Vacation benefits are great. Salary is decent. Co-workers willing and able to help each other. Opportunities for overtime for hourly employees.

    Cons

    Constant change in direction and lack of communication is driving moral down. With the constant change in management we have seen more focus on numbers and less focus on quality. Lack of personal training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide classroom and personal/interactive training for new products you want your technicians to support. If upper management suggests a knee jerk reaction to a temporary problem, lower management needs to have the gumption to tell them it is a knee jerk reaction and that it is not beneficial to the long term goals of a successful company instead of blindly following.
