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

    Pros

    - Decent starting base for someone with no prior sales experience and right out of college.
    - Some management is very supportive and wants to help you be successful.
    - Environment can be fun and light-hearted at times.

    Cons

    - Very unrealistic sales expectations, very much a sink or swim set-up, even for people without sales experience.
    - Favoritism is very apparent in management approach.
    - Technology is very dated, but has improved. However learning the codes and balancing four open screens can be difficult.
    - Not a lot of upward mobility - they hire from outside versus inside.
    - Training is too short and not a lot of help provided once on the phones.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend a large investment in employee training coupled with an infrastructure refresh, very dated technology when compared to competitors.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and nothing else

    Cons

    Lower than low commission structure, high turnover, outdated systems. Im not one to complain about a job but this has been the worst experience ever and im a top performer. You only get your poor hourly pay if you are only one product off from goal.

    Advice to Management

    You are a fortune 500 company, learn to pay your employees fairly!!
