    "Sr. Management talks a good game on changing culture but is ineffective in implementing or influencing the employees."

    I have been working at TDS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    TDS has a great culture and everyone is friendly and gets the job done here. The age range of employers ranges between young graduates to those who have been in the Company for over 20 years. The CIO (Kurt Thaus) is a very friendly and he knows the employees names, and very active with what goes on around the Company. Very friendly atmosphere where you get to know everyone. Best customer service at every department you reach out to and I love that about this Company.

    Cons

    There has been little growth in career changes that I've seen over the many years I've been at TDS. It's a catch-22 where you do a lot to show you are a team player and take on incoming projects/activities, and get the push back that you are doing too much or that the Company does not have the time/money for you to continue such activity. The call center environment is locked down, and you are chained to your desk. There is no growth after you have become a Technician II unless a Technician III leaves the company or promoted, you might possibly become a III but chances are slim as everyone competes for it.

    Advice to Management

    The way success is measured can be improved. The fact that someone is not happy about the Company policy or such and gives your employee a 1 out of 5 star rating scale brings their performance to a low, is low of Management to continue that being a part of success measures over the years. And if you're going to hold employees down to their desks all day, please provide us with decent cordless headsets. It is difficult enough to leave our desks for our few given breaks/lunch to get around to see faces around the office, the least Management could do is take a few minute out of their time to stop by an employee's desks and carry a decent conversation or a personal hello to say the least.
