    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you know the Labor Laws and follow the FMLA GUIDELINES... take in consideration if employee finds out short of benefits and they drive into work while on a medication that they are not to operate machinery to keep their job you dont pressure the supervisor to fire them....

    Pros

    Company is very proactive and has created an outstanding culture known as the dynamic organization. Very employee and customer focus. Always looking to do the right thing for the customer.

    Cons

    Company is a retail wireless company within a very cut throat industry. Change is inevitable and constant in order to stay relevant with the rest of the industry.

    I worked at U.S. Cellular full-time

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and worked around mostly good people. They have had some growing pains, so job security is not what it once was. The change in executive leadership has not helped maintain the level of trust once had for that level in the organization.

    Cons

    Seems like they are being groomed for a buyout. You will need to consider the uncertainty of the company's future before making a decision to pursue a job with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an organization, it is top heavy on the higher leadership title's. Could have cut costs in that area so not as many people would have been laid off.

    Poor Leadership, Growth Opportunities are limited depending on your department. Constantly changing organization structure shows lack of senior leadership vision. Poor Understanding of market presence

    Be more nimble, and embrace change at a faster pace. Poor accountability for senior leaders and middle management needs to be changed.

    Pros

    Very mature IT processes, good code quality for internal development, strong culture of communication and strategy alignment at all levels.

    Cons

    Poor leader development and support. Constantly coached on your weaknesses and very little acknowledgment of strengths, getting promoted could be challenging. Poor work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the time to develop the current leaders and the next level leaders, recognize and reward the positives instead of focusing so much on the negatives.
