    Pros

    Excellent team oriented environment. Great support throughout management structures. Strong Customer Service focus. Excellent PTO plan. Strong Diversity. Good Wellness plan. Decent Compensation.

    Cons

    Employee Engagement emphasis is too narrowly focused and defined. Regularly fails to recognize or reward Top Performers. Health Benefits discourage seeking treatment unless it's catastrophic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great Customer Focus. Try to refocus on being a Technology company. Benefits shift was too abrupt, painful and unexpected, we're still reeling. We need stronger growth in our segment.

    The culture is great and collaboration is good across teams. Windstream offers a lot of opportunity for career growth and training opportunities. Also, the education reimbursement assistance is nice.

    Changes occur often, but with a large organization that happens to align the business with its customers. We just have to adapt at times.

    Listen to employees and look at promoting within to keep good employees.
