I worked at SureWest Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Work independently.
Work with great people.
Great benefits.
Great corporate culture.
Good work/life balance.
Entry-level to high mod-level management is trust worthy (i.e. the managers you are most likely to deal with.)

Cons

Work in all kinds of weather.
Work in homes that vary greatly in terms of cleanliness (some people are pigs)
Work on Saturdays on a rotational basis if you do not have adequate seniority.
Recently bought by Consolidate Communications who started off their relationship with their newly acquired company (Surewest) with lies and massive layoffs.

Advice to Management

Don't let Consolidated Communications (new owners) completely strangle the Surewest culture. It was the culture that I valued most about this employer and Consolidated has started things off on the wrong foot. At least I got an awesome severance package and I'm not around to see that culture flounder and die. The former CEO, Steve Oldham, sold this company off to his USTA buddy, leaving a bunch of employees hung out to dry while he got a serious golden handshake.
