    Pros

    The commitment to uphold the 4 Core Values (Caring Culture, Open Communication, Unmatched Service, Personalized Solutions) makes PAETEC a unique player in the marketplace, not only for customers but for employees as well. The environment is supportive and encouraging, where managers don't need to take credit for the work of their team, but let individuals stand out.

    Cons

    The internal community is not as strong as it could be. With little opportunity for interaction (no main gathering place for lunchtime, departments spread across several buildings/locations), it can be difficult to build relationships between the different functional areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pursuing Open Communication and sharing from the top down -- it's not common to find a company so open to talking on a regular basis. Maintain the focus on the employees. While some will always take issue with anything/everything, the feeling that you are noticed and valued makes a big difference.

    Pros

    Good culture, lots to learn, very approachable management

    Cons

    Compensation in technical roles is sub-market, after layoffs last year there is way more work to do than people to perform it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, pay your technical staff reasonably
