    I worked at Fonality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many options to enhance learning, VOIP, programming, ASA, etc... It's a great place to work for anyone curious to learn

    Cons

    Too many directors and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting a person base on favoritism, or how much you like the individual is the reason why a business stops growing and loses quality of support.

    Pros

    Laid back environment until the lay offs, free snacks and appreciation lunches

    Cons

    The HUD product, among other things, are not stable, a lot of customers are not happy a few have left. Management seems to take a less than urgent attitude, no surprise, they don't have to deal with most of the angry customers.

    Advice to Management

    Update the products and fix immediately for stability. Provide some type of formal product training for new employees.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable insurance, Over the top reasonable hours and flexibility,

    Cons

    No direction or training from management, Partners were just lead gen providers, too small a customer base, no channel accountability for partners to meet certifications or quotas, 3 people in sales are meeting quota, no one else. Recent layoff of 5% of the total company. Behind the curve on upgrades to the software.

    Advice to Management

    catch up to the software upgrades by competition, come to the office more to view issues, work on partner recruitment, have a plan when things are tried and fail.

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere even though there are numerous stressful moments. Decent benefits, and hump day snack wagon. Flexible managers (at least mine are)

    Telecommunications industry is often unpredictable. Other than that I can't think of any consideration worth mentioning.

    Be more involved with your employees.

    Start showing at the office more often.
