Pros

Good managers. Great co-workers. Training has improved over the years. Benefits are good. If you work in certain departments as in the field most managers are great. No micromanagement depends on the manager!!! Company vehicle. The company restructured FINALLY and is trying to turn around the wasted spending of the past but it not quite there yet. free coffee if you drink it.

Cons

The pay is a joke! Low morale in the trenches. No training on most equipment. No raise in 4 years. Good old boy mentality (keeping people around who really do not know what the hell they are doing because they are your buddy!) To many political games being played upstairs. Did i mention no raises in 4 year? Lack of communication with upper management

Advice to Management

Speak to your employee’s. Listen to them about what needs to change. INVEST IN YOUR EMPLOYE's because if you won't someone else will. Stop spending money on stupid things like re-tagging the vehicles with a stupid looking logo! Try and improve moral with contest that all employees can share in not just sales. It's sad when all the employee’s want this company to be sold I hope it comes soon!

    Pros

    Good support people. Large market share. Company has a fantastic asset in the Electric Lightwave fiber backbone. Engineers are smart and helpful in formulating solutions. Comp plan is lucrative if you are one of the chosen sales reps.

    Cons

    Company still lives in the culture of the haves and have nots. New leadership, again and things are not compleated yet. Management needs to rip off the bandaid and enforce the "Rules of Engagement" so that all Enterprise reps can make money. As it stands of late there are 5 reps out of 18 that are makeing money. The rest are making their base only.

    Advice to Management

    Rip off the rules of engagement bandaid and let the Enterprise Sales Reps sell to the Enterprise accounts and let all the Enterprise sales Manager boats rise together in their specific vertical market! Good Luck.

    Pros

    On site gym, college reimbursement program, free coffee.

    Cons

    Little room for promotion unless you happen to be friends with your manager. More than likely your manager is incompetent and has only been promoted because they've been there forever. Major systems problems. Purchasing of very expensive systems only to go back to old ones, incorrect training - then corrective training. NO RAISE IN 4 YEARS. Benefits cut. CEO fallout. Failing business model.

    Advice to Management

    People keep asking about Integra being sold or acquired because we're all WANTING it to happen! Hello?!
    Integra is middle management heavy - and chalk full of those who have no business being a manager.
    Stop promoting/rehiring awful people as executives and VP's. Everyone knows what that one executive did in AZ, okay? AND YOU KEPT HIM. Shame on you.
