    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Above market compensation and benefits. Company full of good, hardworking people.

    Cons

    Most reviews on Hawaiian Telcom are pretty accurate. The 4-5 star ones are most likely workers tied to employee satisfaction, marketing/investor relations or have a rare/protected position. If you don't mind having a terrible work life balance, you will do well here. You will be a slave to your cell, VPN connection and will be sure to miss a lot of family time, gain weight and develop mental and physical health issues....

    Advice to Management

    Push for more work life balance. The reviews, employee survey, high-turnover and stress/sadness in people's faces show change needs to happen now.

    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are very competitive. The location of the main offices is great. It's nice to work downtown with all that has to offer. Hours are manageable.

    Cons

    The environment is challenging for those that would like to make a difference early on. The corporate culture is not one that embraces change, new innovative ideas and approaches. There are a large percentage of people that are quite content with the way it always was including executive leadership. Quality is also not a focus.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate leadership needs to instill a culture of continuous improvement and quality and promote people that innovate and think outside the box. Embrace education and training to improve the skillset and awareness of the workforce to other ways of doing things.
