    I worked at GENBAND full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was very good but that was carried over from Nortel
    Great working level people

    Cons

    Moved from a 400 to 2200 employee company but did not change many of the processes so logic was to go figure it out yourself.
    Work load was crazy with 70+ hour work weeks and was getting worse
    Could not move the Network Transformation past the Tier 3 market with little competition

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and take action from the most experienced and not on market trends
    Try "Undercover Boss"
