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

Pros

Good people and benefits. A lot of upfront training which is good depending on the business unit you work in.

Cons

limited growth opportunity. middle management in various technical dept has what seems to be a purpose of making things more complicated then they really are or need to be. a lot of time seems spent on reasons not to do something instead of reasons to do something. very political structure and too conservative.

Advice to Management

Too many people in management positions who don't know what they are doing

    I have been working at TDS full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people there are good people that want to see you grow. The culture, the old culture that is hanging on, is a good one. People work hard and you are rewarded for your work.

    Cons

    Beware of HR. They have proven themselves to be untrustworthy and have a very bad reputation in the organization, but they'll never learn about it because they don't want to know and the rule by fear. Personally, I've tested my HR rep by giving them confidential information and my leader knew what I'd told them within 2 days - twice this has happened. They also like to make threats and accusations that are completely unfounded - I've seen this happen to a number of people - usually to anyone that questions them or pushes back. They decide they don't like them and they start working to get them out. I'm not sure if it they are even aware. . . . Be particularly careful of the ER and CP.

    Advice to Management

    Survey the employees and try to see what they actually think of HR and leardership. The employee survey isn't doing it.
