    I have been working at Convergence Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *At Convergence, there is a lot of potential mobility for promotions, training, etc. *The training/education opportunities are unbelievable. *The ownership and management team are basically in perfect sync so you don't see any blatant dysfunction between the high level goals and the operations. *Office politics and drama are probably at the minimum level that mere humans can achieve. *Teamwork is emphasized. You...

    Cons

    *This industry is not cupcakes and rainbows. Not all customers are what you might consider "reasonable". You have to use and/or develop people skills to be able to play the cards you're dealt and find ways to build trust and work with difficult customers. *Typical growing pains for a growing company such as space issues and integrating new staff.

    Advice to Management

    *Expand the company's offices into other cities. *Continue to grow the next generation of leaders so the company can carry its culture and core values forward. *Consider internships to grow the next generation of staff. *Keep doing the road maps and spend more time talking about them and refining them. That whole concept is gold.

    I worked at Convergence Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Profit sharing.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit below market value and seems almost impossible to make any real upward motion quickly. Raises were dangled in front of my nose like a carrot. Work/Life balance is barely non-existent is seems.

    Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. The hard part about Glassdoor is the feedback is hard to put into context. Why? It simply tells me you worked here in the past, but not the year. Why does that matter? Like people, businesses evolve and change for many reasons ...

    Pros

    Smart, hard working people that mean the best for their clients and co-workers.

    Cons

    Lacking in communicating the company's goals down from management to the staff in a consistent manner.

    Advice to Management

    Better organization and/or articulation of where the business is going and how each person in the organization can help achieve those goals.

    Thanks for your feedback. Candidly, when I first saw it, I was taken back on the communications piece. Why? Via EOS/Traction process we have a documented 5-year, 3-year, 1-year and per quarterly plan outlined into a VTO document. We present that plan to the company every January ...
