I worked at RCN full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The people that are left are the cream of the crop, so there's some quality employees there. Compensation is good, and the company has survived through some tough times.

Cons

Lack of growth, both the product and within the organization. Upper level management decisions often seem illogical and poorly communicated.

Advice to Management

Grow the business - it's been stagnant too long. What once was a progressive cutting edge business is now stale and stagnant. Hang on to good employees - too many VP's making poor choices.

    I worked at RCN full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked with many terrific and talented people. We worked so well as a group, that when the job required 50+ hours at times, it was for the right reasons.

    Cons

    Management focused on short term strategies and we always wondered if we would be the next person to be laid-off.

    Advice to Management

    Work on long-term strategies that focuses on improving customer retention, strategic cost saving measures, and overall long-term growth.

    Well benefits such as 401k suck little match and have to be here a year before you get it. Commissions are taxed in a separte check . No alot of room for movement. And the amount of foo they give out cake icecream if you want to gain about a 100 pounds this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Change the 401k Match and don`t show bad graphs in company meetings
