Pros – PAETEC advocated employee advancement and assisted in encouraging a team atmosphere. I felt valued as an employee and enjoyed working for such a company.
Cons – Integrations were slow to happen and legacy factions were allowed to continue rather than fully integrate. Annual layoffs were disruptive and disconcerting.
