    Pros

    Decent benefit package. Friendly work environment. Some positions have flexible work hours. Generally very good in understanding the needs of working parents.

    Cons

    Too many employees with a very high sense of entitlement. Too many employees who don't collaborate well because "It's not in my job description". It's a co-op so business practices are very different than a for-profit. Decisions are made through a board of director system; problem is out of the 12 members, there are maybe 2 who have any tech savvy and this is a telecommunications company. Expect to buy technical hardware/software products at for too low a price that will not function they way they want it to and expect their engineers to "make it work". Product testing is done and then the decision making and/or the purchasing process takes way too long, technology changes and you need to start over again. There's a tug of war between the union and non-union positions. Some union positions are grossly overpaid. There are also problems in pay within the union itself; higher knowledge level, schooling requirements and certifications are not being compensated correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Employees have an overwhelming feeling that they're either being kept in the dark or out and out lied to. Company politics is through the roof. The nepotism clause should be put back in place. The hiring of too many family members has caused a lot of morale issues. Stop creating jobs to promote your friends and /or family.
