    ENORMOUS EDUCATIONAL AND LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES!!!
    Benefits are good...but continually not as good as they were the year before.

    Cons

    Has lost its way as a communications/entertainment company
    Horrendous leadership...in fact...NO leaders, none top to bottom.
    Compensation.
    Customer Service.
    Disjointed leadership structure top to bottom.
    No practical experience in majority of teams.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing the stock price for today for about 2 months and pay attention to your customers. Understand your business is connecting people through phone to entertainment. Believe it. Allow your employees to benefit from your success.
