    I worked at Hawaiian Telcom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    pay and benefits are great. If you can survive initial probationary period, extremely strong union. On-site cafeteria and gym.

    Cons

    Training program very inadequate. After completing initial training period you will find much of the information you were taught is wrong and will be reprimanded for YOUR "errors". Management and leads are rarely available and when they are you will often get conflicting responses. Management does not care about employees and does not take accountability for their errors. Buck passing very common. Company systems are extremely inefficient/inadequate and often results in customer facing issues which you will be responsible to correct. Inadequately staffed for technical support positions which results in long hold times and irate customers. Corporate culture feels like high school. It often feels like management didn''t care if you're a good employee and perform your job, only if they liked you. Favortism very prevalent. Employee churn very high due to job dissatisfaction. Most employees will agree that they dislike working there but tolerate it for the pay.
