    Pay, benefits, culture are all great. Love the people I work with.

    Can be a little conservative at times, but that probably explains the company stability over the long haul.

    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)

    Pros

    I enjoy the work/life balance and the chance to work from home. I like the predictability and stability of the organization as a whole.

    Cons

    An IT Support Technician supports 100+ applications across the Enterprise including US Cellular however concerning our salary review we're labeled as a typical ticket jockey from Joe Schmo Co. opening and routing tickets. I think that Mr. Gantner should come sit with one of our analysts for a few days and get his doors blown off.

    Advice to Management

    Compare these support roles to other support roles in this organization. When a business analyst is supporting one specific function of SAP with minor project work, they are making significantly more money. There are several current business analysts that are former Technicians, ask them what they think of the wage paid to Technicians based off the span of knowledge needed to support the Enterprise.
