Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Laid back
Benefits are insane... if you're part of the union

Cons

Company is going nowhere
No innovation, everything is outsourced
Employees fool around all day, sucking up resources and providing no value
Managers are arrogant, lazy, paper pushers who will sacrifice their employees for self gain
Young technical employees with talent, drive, and ability to turn the company around are not respected by management
Older employees are resistant to learning and adopting the latest technologies
Career killer, stay away from this company unless you want a cushy job and let all your skills go to rust

Advice to Management

Respect your employees
Innovating is hard, non-technical managers cannot manage technical employees
Flatten out the hierarchical system, there are too many layers of useless management
The majority of managers are incompetent and dragging the company down, fire them
Hire young fresh blood who can innovate, don't keep your lazy old workers who do nothing all day

    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, awesome people, variety of job positions.

    Cons

    More reactive than proactive due to limited budget. Most projects than employees to handle.
