    I worked at Pinnacle Wireless full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hard working people at the mid-lower management level and some very experienced Engineers and Technicians.

    Cons

    List is long:
    Upper management is relatively incompetent and vision/culture is merely posters on walls. Most Corporate Senior VP positions, COO, CIO, HR and other key positions throughout the parent company, Unitek GS are recruited from UPS. The CEO and President, Rocky Romaniello is a former mid-level manager from UPS, and despite of recent downsizing all "former UPS' employees have a "walk-out-of-jail" free card. The company is "top-heavy" with a high number of "top-dollar" non-productive overhead positions. A lot of the real competence in the company are long gone for competitors, and the business outlook for this Telecom/Cable Contractor is not too promising at the moment. - Credit Ratings very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the right behavior and competence, re-establish the culture (walk-the-walk), get more business (strengthen the sales-force) and down-size amongst mid-top level "non-productive" management. Board of Directors should consider a new President, CEO and senior management (preferably with strong Telecom industry background and track record).

    I have been working at Pinnacle Wireless

    Pros

    Great VP and Service Organization, with a team in Service and Operations that is second to none.

    Cons

    Poor Vision from the CEO and no direction. The company lacks core fundamentals in general business relationships. OEM's will not do business with the CEO as an result of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your people and try to grow with them. Keep your core business values and create new business. Do not destroy business relationships for your personal gain.
