    Brilliant people in staff. Very creative, but limited by CEO's inability to understand the clients and legal environment.

    Behind the times management, but company has since been purchased.

    Not sure of the future in this company due to buy out

    I have been working at Fios full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some great talent including managers, very hardworking intelligent people. Used to have excellent benefits. Decent pay for this area.

    Cons

    Used to have great benefits until buy out. New owner doesn't seem concerned about keeping current talent happy. Unsure of the future under new ownership. May be looking for work elsewhere now. Tended to overwork employees, may change now with more revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees here would be hard to replace with their combination of intelligence, experience and dedication. Please rethink the changes in benefits and keep Fios more intact. We had a great work environment for the most part. I think people will be looking to move to other companies, destroying the hard work we have put in to become Fios.

    I worked at Fios

    Pros

    Interesting technical environment. Fast moving. Lack of standardization provides fun challenges. Good benefits overall.

    Cons

    Hard to affect change outside your area. Constant "ON" and fire-fighting mode. Weekend work is a given. Limited career building opportunities. Internal drama can be fierce at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay could be more competitive. Provide fulltime staff for weekends and evenings, not just overwork current employees every single weekend.

    Fios - No it isn't Fiber Optic - It is circling the drain

    I worked at Fios

    Pros

    Good exposure to technology and the market as well as several bright individuals have passed through its halls. You can get hands on in a variety of areas related to e-discovery and the sales team has been outstanding.

    Cons

    Delivery never delivers upon its promises, take for example batch printing promised in 2007 to a major automobile manufacturer was not delivered until 2009. Finger pointing is rampant and senior management overextended the company causing it to go into the red and forcing layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company while you can although I'm not sure anyone would still want to buy it as it is a shell of its former self and probably doesn't carry much value especially with its outdated technology. Management gambled and lost and the employees paid the price.
