Advice to Management

I worked for NuVox, before Windstream acquired them. The merger killed the somewhat enjoyable environment that Nuvox had fostered.
In the interest of full disclosure, I honestly know nothing about truly running a company. But maybe stop buying so many companies and successfully integrate the ones you already have. It may make the investors happy to keep growing like that, but it doesn't seem to be a very sustainable business model.

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

    Pros

    Good, reliable employer. Decent pay. Good opportunity for promotion as many layers of management.

    Cons

    Long hours in the Accounting and Finance Organization. Frequent movement of staff between groups leads to loss of organizational knowlege.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance should matter. Consider some version of comp time to account for the accounting cycle.
