    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at OniTelecom full-time

    Pros

    god temwork, but only between teammates

    Cons

    no market strategy

    company goes through a reordering in a 5 year cycle, has been sold 2 times in 2 years

    Lack of serious investment on hardware infrastructure

    Most of the employees are the same since early on because of the good salary packages however there is no individual performance evaluation done on employees or training provided to them as a consequence most of them are waiting to be let-off

    When a employee leaves in most cases it does not get replaced

    Advice to Management

    invest seriously or close

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent team with a lot of good professionals
    Lots of different ways to make your mark
    Lots of training and access to top notch technologies
    Good pay and conditions if you negotiate well at the beginning
    Some truly exceptional managers and leaders

    Cons

    Company Go to Market strategy is nonexistence and fells rudderless
    Large number of people on "golden shelves" create resentment and put drag on the bottom line
    Attrition due to infighting is very high, with lots of different groups pushing their own agendas
    Management has a very cavalier attitude towards managing employees expectations
    Lots of "navel gazers" on key positions make it hard to respond to market opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "gangs" and the "Golden Shelves"
    Reward the people who make things happen instead of those who make "nice presentations to management"
