      old boy politics

      Pros

      If you're a working level person that likes to learn a variety of new things, it's the place for you. Once you establish yourself as a "problem solver", you can jump into nearly every problem and build a great set of skills.

      Cons

      As much of the reviews have said and EVERYONE in the company knows. The problem is middle and upper management; mostly the former. Middle management has been a problem since the Verizon cutover. Sure, there are a bunch of intelligent people in middle management but there are also some really bad ones; ones that speak eloquently and pass off blame but deliver next to nothing. Upper management is also at fault as they cycle through people every 2-3 years, bringing new middle management from previous companies with them. Good intentions but no historical context. Furthermore, they get conned into believing the middle management that speak well. All in all, a vicious cycle. I loved the peers I worked with on a daily basis. The reason I left was really because there was zero accountability and way too much politics that got in the way of sound "business or technology decisions." Altogether very sad.

      My outlook on the company and its goals and priorities have decreased steadily over time.

      Pros

      Compensation is reasonable, there are many opportunities to learn given the large number of departments and the people are great.

      Cons

      Employee morale is low, because: upper management is out of touch with the realities faced by individual contributors, middle level management is constantly jockeying for position, it is very political, company is out of touch with the market. People our doing what's in their own best interest and there is no unity across the company.

      "It's just the culture here"

      Pros

      The majority of the people you'll interact with at the working level are GREAT and know how to get things done, even if they're not sure why Mid through Upper Management wants it done in the first place!

      Cons

      Middle-Upper Management know what the issues are, but the power struggle between all of them will not allow for positive changes to be made for the benefit of the company as a whole.

      Pros

      People are great. Culture at times can be family oriented.

      Cons

      Upper management has a lack of vision and moves very slow towards changes.
