    I worked at Windstream full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a business account manager the bonus pay was awesome!

    Cons

    This company totally lacks any empathy or compassion for its employees, the department I worked for eliminated and they told us exactly 12 days before Christmas that we would be without a job. There where no heads up or no warning signs. Some people had already put in over 10 years with the company, but still was terminated. Then the company advised to apply for open positions within the company....really? Why eliminate a whole department then advise those jobless employees to apply for other open positions. If the whole department was being dismantled why not place those employees in the open positions that they are most qualified for instead of forcing them to apply and compete with outside competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to training because you all are terrible at it.....even the director!

    I have been working at Windstream full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, pay, learned a lot about telecommunications & technology, benefits ok

    Cons

    Very little internal communication within the company & with management, outdated systems, dishonesty in customer service (selling high speed internet to senior citizens in nursing homes), jobs being outsourced to India - people with 30-40 years seniority being let go, inconsistent order process - no consistency. Company more focused on sales than customer service

    Advice to Management

    Try focusing on people in the United States rather than trying to save a buck or two by outsourcing. Maybe sit down with AT&T & learn something about running a phone company
