    I have been working at TDS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, experienced staff, several resources, flexible environment, fast paced, high performing organization, good location, room for advancement, little office politics

    Cons

    Older tenured senior workforce, few outside of work activities and events, difficult fitting in at first, several levels of management, confusing organizational structure, slow top-down decision making

    Advice to Management

    Focus on lowering the average age of the workforce and work on creating a younger culture. More outside of work company sponsored activities can help create a more relaxed emvironment. New employee on-boarding should be handed more carefully (official training isn't for weeks)

    I have been working at TDS full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people there are good people that want to see you grow. The culture, the old culture that is hanging on, is a good one. People work hard and you are rewarded for your work.

    Cons

    Beware of HR. They have proven themselves to be untrustworthy and have a very bad reputation in the organization, but they'll never learn about it because they don't want to know and the rule by fear. Personally, I've tested my HR rep by giving them confidential information and my leader knew what I'd told them within 2 days - twice this has happened. They also like to make threats and accusations that are completely unfounded - I've seen this happen to a number of people - usually to anyone that questions them or pushes back. They decide they don't like them and they start working to get them out. I'm not sure if it they are even aware. . . . Be particularly careful of the ER and CP.

    Advice to Management

    Survey the employees and try to see what they actually think of HR and leardership. The employee survey isn't doing it.
