    I worked at Granite Telecommunications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most coworkers are around the same age with similar levels of experience which helps build a collaborative team environment and develop strong working relationships. Great place to learn new skills which makes it a good job for someone fresh out of college to gain a year or two of corporate experience before moving on. Free gym, saves on average $10-$30 per month compared to other local options Company is philanthropic and donates to multiple charities.

    Cons

    The ever growing job responsibilities for this role can be daunting even to self-starters. Your experience/success in this role is strongly dependent on the accounts you are assigned to manage. Office politics here are a bit dated and the company as whole is not very flexible. There are no work from home options available for employees who are required to work during large snow storms. If you can't make it in you're taking the time out of your PTO. At the time there didn't seem to be any action plans from upper management to improve any of these in the future.

    Pros

    -Although the work maybe hard, the skills you learn enable you to get a very good job. - Immediate managers are awesome! They want you to succeed and stay. -higher level managers may seem intimidating due to title but they are some of the nicest people. Communicating them will do wonders for growth and career. Being able to communicate with upper level managers can excel you career and provided you growth opportunities. -I cannot say enough positive things about Sandy Kelleher! She has done wonders for my career while at Granite and after. -all managers are very respectful of work loads, overtime and vacation time, if you communicate any issues with them. -everyone is willing to help you grow and develop you just have to ask.

    Cons

    -management tries to hold on to talented people but top level executives do not give them the resources needed to stay competitive. Company resources are devoted to sales and because of this a lot of talented workers in operations get higher paying jobs elsewhere. -Some employees think they are managers based on seniority. They over complicate processes for new employees instead of helping them become learn and grow processes. -senior execs put too much restraint on employees. Required weekly meetings, strict schedules and other policy’s are too old school and do not hold up with changing workplace trends. Larger, more prestigious companies are not as intense. Senior execs are trying to make the company seem more impressive than it actually is. They have started to evolve, becoming more relaxed on dress code and work from home options.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to conversations with employees. Higher level executives need to give more attention to operations in order to keep talent. Sales are important but they aren’t the only part of the company.
