    Pros

    Exposure to some of the savviest aND brilliant minds in the industry. I feel very fortunate to have learned from the bes. The benefits, salaries and bonuses were A+

    Cons

    Work/life balance in finance is hit or miss. There's an unspoken expectation that it's the company above almost everything else.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Medical and Dental as well as many employee perks. Flexible hours and paid time off and vacations that gets better over time.

    Cons

    Hard to advance up without doing at least a little brown nosing. Depending on the store your in sale could be very bad due to lack of traffic. When your numbers are good everything is fine, but have a bad month they make your life hell, district managers would run crack of dawn training to help improve numbers know to employees as "punishment trainings". Some of the managers are good, some not so great depends on who they are and how cool you are with them. I've had managers i've partied with and managers I ducked phone calls, but even though I no longer work there i'm still in contact with a few people.

    Advice to Management

    Management should all be on the same page, have some sort of management skills.

    Pros

    great work-life balance. 8 to 5. Well established company. easy to move different location or positions.

    Cons

    surprisingly weak UX team. no place to look up as ux designer. too many middle manager don't do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    if you meet narrow minded manager don't have experience for UX team having a hard time.
    benefits and office culture is good.

    Pros

    Decent salary, benefits for a recent undergard. Opportunity to move around in company if you keep an open mind.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive as far as the tri-state market goes. Did not get to negotiate salary, it was take it or leave it deal. Very slow to move on getting things changed due to recent finance transformation org resturcting. Can become silo at times.

    Advice to Management

    Work with HR to compensate employees. Wireless and Wireline have two different career paths, need to align them both and have the same discounts, benefits, salary compensations.

    Got hands on experience in my field. Team was always supportive and willing to give me new tasks.

    Cons

    There wasn't enough movement through other facets of business. I received some experience in project management, but other then that I stayed in Marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
