    I have been working at Windstream full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fortune 500 experience
    Salary can be decent if you negotiate
    Nice office

    Cons

    Poor infrastructure - single switch, no EoC, no fiber, no data centers. Mostly reselling AT&T, AboveNet, XO, and others. Pricing is usually high. "Why should I buy AT&T from you?". Very little name recognition. Tedious and confusing sales systems. No usable CRM. Terrible record for implementing successfully. Small install base and few are reference-able. All problems roll back downhill to the sales people with ineffective managerial support.

    Advice to Management

    Demand infrastructure investment immediately. Learn how to differentiate talented people and give them incentive to want to stick around. Recognize the challenges and set realistic, achievable goals for reps. Reduce the environment of constant anxiety. Fire dead weight quicker.
