      Management is not held accountable

      May 5, 2021 - Anonymous Employee

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits, pay and ability to work from home

      Cons

      Management is not held accountable for inaccurate training. Job duties and expectations are changed without the employee knowing and management is not held accountable when expectations are not met. Human Resources focuses on trust, but the company doesn't trust its own employees. Human Resources is not a safe place for employees to go with concerns and they do not show appreciation for long standing employees.

      Pros

      Always working with you if you are working with them. The company values its employees, and would rather keep great people than replace them.

      Cons

      None that I can describe from my experience.

      Great employees & culture

      Pros

      For it being a corporate environment, TDS has a nice laid-back, work hard play hard culture to the workplace. All everyone is super helpful and willing to drop what they’re doing to help. The teams also get together to do fun social events which is fun!

      Cons

      Corporate culture makes it difficult to get any projects done quickly. Though since this is in the telecommunications industry, due to regulations this is an unfortunate necessity.

      Pros

      Coming from other giant communications Death Stars I will say that TDS does take care of their people. The pay isn't as good as it was at the death star, but you have quality of life which was severly lacking elsewhere.

      Cons

      Being on call sucks, but it's part of the job.

      Company isn't prioritizing hiring interns on full time

      Mar 28, 2021 - Intern in Madison, WI

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Not too stressful. They will pay for training to improve your skills

      Cons

      They don't communicate well with interns about getting a salaried full-time role. There really isn't a set end date for the internship so you're left hanging for months wondering if you'll get an offer. I've been doing good work here for almost a year post-college graduation and I don't see an offer in sight even after talking with management many times.
