    Pros

    Many products and services to sell and support. Good training available. Working from home is encouraged at middle management levels. Many locations to work out of as well if you need office space.

    Cons

    Very centrally based in Dallas, TX for growth opportunities. Cost cutting is a constant focus of the business so you never feel secure with job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on our internet and web tools for services. The cable TV services need to converge. Employees need to be more empowered to help customers.
