    I have been working at PEG Bandwidth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PEG has a great corporate environment. Yes it's technically still a start up with the typical growing pains of any successful growing company. However everything that can be done for the employees and customers at PEG is being done to improve business. You have VP, C-Level, and an HR Director that truly do care about where PEG is going and how they get there.

    Cons

    Still battling some fires left in place by former high level management. Not necessarily a Con but does require some rolled up sleeves and fortitude.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to hire people smarter/ more knowledgeable than you.

    Pros

    Fast paced, lots of technology to learn and work with

    Cons

    recent 10% reduction in workforce including the CTO, very chaotic, no industry standard monitoring tools, change management is a joke.

    Pros

    Plenty of really good people that work here. Growing very fast.

    Cons

    Long hours, day and night. Work-life balance can be terrible at times. Constantly on call 24x7 without any compensation. PEG does not spend money on anything which costs them more in the long run. From tools to fleet vehicles to the equipment they use is the cheapest available. Everything is a fire drill here and needs to have been done yesterday. Leadership is too centralized.

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting the work life balance of your employees. Spend money on quality equipment, tools, and trucks. It makes for a better work place and moral. Compensate your employees and be will to give pay raises!

    Pros

    The company is growing very quickly and will probably be a big time player in the telecom industry within the next few years. The telecom world will only continue to grow.

    Cons

    They don't care about your home or personal life. You are expected to be on call 24/7 and always have your phone by your side. As another reviewer stated, they only care about chasing numbers and dollars. They expect everyone, from field techs, to project managers, to vendors, contractors, and major companies like Verizon and Sprint to bend to their will and cater to their every demand immediately. Very little organization. Bad reputation amongst contractors, building managers and vendors. Other employees are afraid of telling the truth why things are not getting done.

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized. Respect rules and procedures and other people's time. PEG can be a huge, influential company. But the disorganization and lack of respect for employees will ultimately be the downfall of the company if it doesn't improve immediately. Too many intelligent people are quitting or are getting burnt out.

    Pros

    good company for service delivery careers; site acquisition, construction management, project management etc.

    Cons

    have likely taken on more than resourced for. workers will have long hours including weekends for a few years to come. burnout a big problem. management is only chasing numbers and disregards the health and welfare of the employee

    Advice to Management

    take care of your employees and be honest with your customers
