    I worked at MTS Allstream (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Worked with great people, smart and caring and often were able to make the most out of a challenging situation. Teleworking (working from home) was a great thing, especially as I had to work with people from across the country.

    Cons

    Challenging place to work, as there were yearly (at least) layoffs, with up to 25% of the staff being let go. Really tough on moral, and no growth oportunities

    Advice to Management

    When you layoff half of a group or team, spend more than 5 minutes figuring out what the new teams roll is going to be. Ignoring the issue with zero support is very disheartening.
