    I have been working at Granite Telecommunications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company has an extremely unique feel to it that is extremely refreshing. The management provides support that is consistent throughout all facets of the business. My favorite part since I started in February is just how small the company feels for being as large as it is. A few weeks back, I won the ops employee of the week award, and the CEO himself sent me a handwritten note thanking me for my hard work. What an AWESOME place to work.

    Also, the compensation and benefits package is extremely competitive across all of our satellite offices and our corporate HQ in Boston.

    Cons

    Traffic can be rough commuting in Atlanta, but that is the same as any other role here in the market pretty much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
