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

    Pros

    Windstream was able to find me a job within the company when they down sized the department that I worked in. They value my work and my commitment to the company.

    Cons

    Needs better health benefits. I also work part time at another job where I have to work 40 hours in a 2 week time frame to qualify for health benefits. It is for a small company and they are better than what Windstream currently offers.

    Advice to Management

    My current management is wonderful to work for. The manager just before this one needs to be more of a people person.

    I have been working at Windstream full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been in and out of the telecom world for about the last 20 years. There is always a need for a telecom person even in the non Windstream world. Learn as much as you can and you will always be needed if there is a reduction in force.

    Cons

    Large company. Sometimes people get lost in the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    We need more culture. Compared to other large companies, they thrive on culture.

    Need to include Sprint discounts for employees as everyone doesn't have Verizon.

    Make sure to continually develop and recognize excellence in your employees.

    Pros

    Great people, lots of office locations, and lots of opportunities. Good pay, and a wide range of opportunities.

    Cons

    Executive vision doesn't always carry through in practical terms. some managers prefer to boss instead of lead. Sometimes suck-ups who should be fired get promoted while good employees who don't get canned.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the employees. Listen to the direct managers. Don't let HR dictate raises. pay bonuses to the people who do the work not just to executives.
