    I have been working at Granite Telecommunications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, everyone there is there to help. The training is pretty good, you learn vital programs like SQL and some powerpivot material. Its a good first professional experience. Adjusting from college to the full time work life can be tough but working at Granite can be less stressful transition.

    Cons

    The company culture is very much outdated. You are requried to come into work from 8-5 (flexible schedules just recently changed and its only for people who have been there for 3 years). Work from home just became available but only twice a month. The required attire just shifted from shirt and tie to business casual. The company is sales focuses, so being in finance can feel like less important to organization. The pay is pretty low compared to the industry standard. Granite has a pretty high turnover rate, so it takes a decent amount of time to have a salary to be proud of. The benefits are pretty bad. Only 7 recognized holidays the whole year, sick days are included in your PTO, and have to come in on snow days.

    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.
