Pros

A professional environment where people are respected and most can achieve reasonable work-life balance. Fair benefits are available. A predictable work experience.

Cons

Long cycles to reach decisions and make any changes. Some hold things up to protect their turf, but for the most part it is just inertia. This leads to great frustration and to the loss of true high performers.

Advice to Management

Become more liberal on remote work. Stop the erosion of benefits to retain the top talent.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work remotely, flexible work time, good vacation time for senior employees

    Cons

    No longer value expert technical experts with only the bottom line being looked at.....spent so much in the merger with Qwest and trying to combine all applications, that they have run out of money and are laying off all their best employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep quality employees, value experts, plan better if you're going to merge, realize that the old 14 state region is MUCH different than the rest of the country and can't be managed like the rest of the country
