    I have been working at Hawaiian Telcom full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Family friendly with lots of flexible hours. Management pretty much leaves you alone if you do your work and keep out of trouble.

    Advice to Management

    The numbers are important but since you here, 3 people quit, next upper management will find out it is a lot of YOU in this.
