    Pros

    The company has good health benefits

    Cons

    There is no balance for work and life. You are expected to be available 24/7 and it’s the minimal requirement.

    Pros

    For a retail job, the hourly pay is somewhat competitive. It's enough to demand cognitive dissonance of an employee. And the wireless/telecommunications sector is one that will never die so you do get a good resume filler.

    Cons

    Talk about ZERO work/life balance. Someone is always getting fired, responsibilities and quotas change without notice so as to make payouts virtually impossible, schedules are communicated at the last minute. Awful!

    Pros

    There is only one good thing i can say about this company i hope not to work for in the long run. The only good thing is benefits..

    Cons

    This is a bad company to work for, they change management like the weather. There's not consistent policies to follow. actually they really have no good policy to follow. Pay is ok but it could be better. No chance to grow unless you suck up. Hours are ridiculous, if you start to work here plan on not having time for your family.

    Advice to Management

    Get better on the management side. Look for the employees that actually do the work. There has to be a better way to reward all employees not just a few with the current rewarding system. The system has a big flaw because it is more like a popularity contest.

    Pros

    Really liked the other employees, easy to get along with. Managers were nice, they were hounded about sales so they were always micro-managing.

    Cons

    Expect you to work non-stop, whatever it takes. Don't worry about having a family or social life outside of this place. The expect way too much from you and it's never enough.

    Advice to Management

    Change the way you treat your employees, high pressure is NOT the way to go! Threats are not a way to keep an employee!

    Pros

    The company has potential but the current management running it is somewhat to be desired.

    Cons

    You have to have the used car saleman mentalithy to work here. Turnover is like a revolving door! (there's your sign)

    Advice to Management

    Bill Morrow has potential and seems to be making changes but the east side of US is being negleted and left in incopetant hands.

    Pay is equal to industry standards. Technology has breakthrough potential.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Senior leadership at the time had a churn and burn mentality. I hope it has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Understand and appreciate that business results will never be achieved unless you attain associate satisfaction.

    Pros

    It is a Job that you will never really make decisions at

    Cons

    Many Managers seem Out of Control, verbal abuse, discrimination and tolerance of it. Hiring of Employees seems to really only happen if you one of their old friends; receiving hire on packages or long term stay in hotels with travel reimbursements and premium
    If not in their circle of friends, plan on just being a contractor with no work related expense reimbursements (i.e.: fuel, mileage, tolls, parking, communication devices)
    I've witnessed isolation, slander, harassment of vendors and contractors.
    Communication across the many various related parties is discouraged with an air of paranoia and secrecy.
    How this company ever going build a usable product with the lack of communication and planning

    Advice to Management

    Be aware more aware of those remote managers especially ones that are overly eager for your approval or friendship, truth be known they are more like snakes in the grass.
    Turnover of your employees or Independent Contractors/ vendor's employees / sub contractors is usually a good clue when they coincide with MLA delays
