    I worked at Cincinnati Bell full-time

    Pros

    Great people, good salary, nice quarterly bonus, and good downtown location with free parking.

    Cons

    Many groups are very sciloed, dated technology that takes several months to update, too many layoffs and outsourcing of important jobs to India and the Philippines. Boys club for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can to keep good people and avoid layoffs. Something has to give in IT. It is a complete joke the amount of time it takes to get a change made.
