    I have been working at Windstream full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My team was recently "dissolved" however the leadership team has worked 24-7 to find us other internal positions. Its a corporate world, but the managers really have their people in mind.

    Cons

    Corporate change, its all about making the investors happy, but thats with any company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and nothing else

    Cons

    Lower than low commission structure, high turnover, outdated systems. Im not one to complain about a job but this has been the worst experience ever and im a top performer. You only get your poor hourly pay if you are only one product off from goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a fortune 500 company, learn to pay your employees fairly!!

    I worked at Windstream

    Pros

    They offer a competitive salary for similar jobs in the industry.

    Cons

    Some upper managers allowed to make employment decisions based on petty issues and not on past performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review an employee's ethic and work history before making an employment decision by one upset manager.
