Windstream sucks in the West

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Windstream full-time for more than a year

ProsFortune 500 experience
Salary can be decent if you negotiate
Nice office

ConsPoor infrastructure - single switch, no EoC, no fiber, no data centers. Mostly reselling AT&T, AboveNet, XO, and others. Pricing is usually high. "Why should I buy AT&T from you?". Very little name recognition. Tedious and confusing sales systems. No usable CRM. Terrible record for implementing successfully. Small install base and few are reference-able. All problems roll back downhill to the sales people with ineffective managerial support.

Advice to Senior ManagementDemand infrastructure investment immediately. Learn how to differentiate talented people and give them incentive to want to stick around. Recognize the challenges and set realistic, achievable goals for reps. Reduce the environment of constant anxiety. Fire dead weight quicker.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
