    Pros

    Medium sized company in a rural setting, good people and long term opportunities

    Cons

    old fashioned, when new ideas are presented they are often shot down because that's not the way we've done things before

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good work life balance, potential to move upward but very traditional and hierarachal

    Pros

    The environment at Northland can be very fulfilling. It is not a typical corporate setting with many levels of red tape. If you are willing to work hard and communicate accordingly, your future there can be rewarding.

    Cons

    The management there is very old school and have very successful with this style. Going forward however, they need to expand their views if they are going to continue to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team needs to consider a succession plan and stick to it.

    I have been working at Northland Communications

    Pros

    A place to receive great fringe benefits such as low cost Internet and Cable TV. Also a great place to meet lots of different types of people from all different ways of life.

    Cons

    Placed technical people under non-technical managers. Considered this unwise because the bosses would not be able to understand what the technicians are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the structure and relationships of technical employees with nontechnical managers. Especially those of managers relating to customer service in relation to technical service.

    I worked at Northland Communications

    Pros

    Northland used to be a great place to work. Employees ideas were used to help formulate company policy. Respect was give to experience. THe best thing I can say now is that there is respect for family at Northland. When time is needed to deal with family issues, it was granted without question.

    Cons

    Numbers are king and experience means nothing. If you can't quantify what you want to do in numbers, it is a bad decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what makes sense, not what data has to say. Find a balance.
