    Salary, 401k, benefits, flexibility, working from home when needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at why your company is tanking. Get rid of the managers you currently have. If you can't figure out that they base their decisions on people they "know" instead of skills, you're going to continue to tank!

    Pros

    The employees want to do the right thing

    Cons

    Imagine being in a rowboat with no motors and no oars or sails in the middle of the pacific ocean with a Hurricane 10 miles away and the nearest shore is over 200 miles away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Professionals I've never in my over 25 years of working in corporate america seen a more inept group of business executives.

    Pros

    Goodman had great benefits for a private company and was decent company to Work for. They truly give you a lot resources to improve your knowledge base for FREE

    Cons

    The processes were terrible. The processes made even competent employees look incompetent to the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire your tech professionals to help you streamline your processes and procedures. Project management has to have great processes in place to work most efficiently.

    I worked at Goodman Networks full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Goodman because I was allowed to do my job without anyone micromanaging me. The salary was competitive and the office culture was relaxed. Sometimes, too relaxed.

    Cons

    A great company that needs to diversify (too many layoffs because of deteriorating business with one client). It's unhealthy for a company to have all, or most, of their eggs in one basket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your market experts (team members in the field). Not all markets operate the way that HQ thinks they should operate. It is not a one-size-fits-all.

    Nepotism and management chaos

    Pros

    Seems to be in a good industry working with major players such as AT&T and DIRECTV. Benefits are pretty good for a medium sized business.

    Cons

    Nepotism and strong perception of the "Good ole boys club". Poor performing managers seem to be rewarded even after poor performance resulting in numerous bottom-up RIFs over the past year. Management seems to run this company like a small business looking for instant gratification rather than long term stability. They definitely have some wrong people in positions of management, particularly in IT. They've turned over 3/4 of their IT department in less than a year. That should tell you quite a bit. Prioritization of tasks is based on "who", not on "what" making it very stressful for staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be conscious of the message of your actions send to employees. You have lost some tremendous talent this year because of very poor leadership.

  11. More Business Development Experts Needed...

    I worked at Goodman Networks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, for a single person. Being a small company the cost for benefits are high for a family. I loved my team. Everyone was truly engaged and geared towards ensuring client satisfaction.

    Cons

    The company needs a stronger business development team so that the client pool is larger,thus helping to ensure more folks remain employed. In my region, this wasn't the case and there were drastic job cuts over the past couple of months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stronger business development/sales team is needed to help the company secure more projects and thus, more growth.
