    Pros

    Good company back in the days when had yearly raises, let you work from home

    Good company back in the days when they used to care about employees but no raises in forever, stop matching 401k

    Listen to front line employees, take care of your existing employees to help prevent alot of turnover

    I worked at Integra Telecom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and good people. Very much enjoyed my job.

    Cons

    Restructuring and losing very good, long term employees. It is a guessing game for now. Really use careful consideration if joining the organization.

    Advice to Management

    To many senior executives that do not know what the other lower management and employees really do and how they impact the business. They may be getting a taste of it now.

    Pros

    Great immediate co-workers and management! Some of the most dedicated employees ever; hard workers and committed to serving their customers!

    Cons

    Constant re-org, regular layoffs, reduced many employee incentives (401k match, cheap anniversary gifts, tuition reimbursement, training, no merit increase) no advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    It's sad to see what was once a great company now a business that has lost all morals and values. It's not funny to sit in an all hands meeting right after a mass 40% layoff just to hear your SVP chuckling about the situation. Sure build your million dollar home at the expensive of your frontline workers' sweat...4 years and counting and majority of us still has not seen one merit increase.

    Pros

    The company culture is really nice. Lots of Spirit activities, pot lucks, bbqs, happy hours, and other morale building events. Casual dress, casual work environment, the people are the best. Everyone is willing to help everyone.

    Cons

    So many layoffs, the most recent was about 40% of their staff. They are trying to move the company in a new direction and several of their locations look to be closing their doors any day now.

    Frequent restructures in upper management, hard to keep track past your direct supervisor. In 2 years was under 3 different Orgs, had 3 CEOs, and witnessed many other title changes.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your staff, stop running your company into the ground following a plan that didn't work, look into the people you are laying off instead of laying off entire teams.

    Pros

    Just one...a strong sense of comradery among the network and field technicians. A great bunch of guys and the best team I had the pleasure to work with. God Speed.
    ...and B. Hoffman has left the building.

    Cons

    Where do I start?!? What more can I say that hasn't already been said. The Titanic would be a good choice if they're going to change the company name. .

    Advice to Management

    Did you know you actually have real people working for you? How about treating them with the respect they deserve. You would be nothing without them.
