    I have been working at TracFone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a very chill work environment (depending on your boss). The majority of people here chill throughout the day and maybe respond to a few emails or have a few emails for the most part. Of course there are busier times but even the busiest times here don't compare to other companies. The people (who have all been here forever) just get caught up and used to doing nothing that when there is something to do they complain.
    This is the easiest work and work environment anyone can have.

    Cons

    Much of the staff has been here forever and is extremely complacent. They do the bare minimum to get by and no one ever gets fired (which I guess could be a good thing for many). There is little anyone can do in terms of power or having a say. The highest dictate what everyone should do and at the drop of a dime, everyone needs to scramble to make it happen even with unrealistic standards. As a company, TF is always several years behind and scrambling to catch up with the innovative companies.
    No trust in employees- they check your bag when you come in and out, no ability to work remotely, minimal PTO (although most can get their work done in only a few hours, you are required to sit there the rest of the day).

    There is no room for upward movement. People stay in the same jobs forever doing the same thing.

    Morale is very low. Everyone who is here has been here forever and hates it. From my first day everyone was telling me to get out as soon as I can. That does not make a new, hopeful employee feel good and want to do great things. You shortly realize you have no say, no one cares about their job and you need to do what you are told and go home.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their jobs and give them some say in the initiatives they work closely with on a day to day basis

    Pros

    New management / CIO in IT - they care about the well being of their employees and consultants.
    Turning agile! New open work space was set up. Finally a breath of fresh air
    They even had a TVs around to watch the world cup. New day!

    Cons

    Still a few seasoned haters but with all the changes the only choice theyll have is to change their mindset or get out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the change up!

    Pros

    Good if you want to just survive and love politics.

    Very hostile and dated culture and work environment is no fun. Absolutely no business strategy or technology vision.
    Executive leadership keep personal agendas and departments are pitched against each other.
