    Pros

    Pay was fair, back office was very good. STT was good.

    Cons

    Upper Managment has no clue of how to run a business. They hired people to run markets that had limited or very little experience in the telecommunications industry. Later found out they were their buddies from gaming. They had good experienced people in these markets and unwisely close their buddies over experienced persons. They have now lost Calix markets across the US. What a shame.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of All your upper management and start over.

    Pros

    Honest work, decent wages, a great starting point for anyone looking to start a career in a high paced technical field.

    Cons

    Pay tops out quickly, will continue to pay the same wages as you continue to learn new skills sets, poor training, high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, ask for feedback from them. Lower management is good, upper is lacking.

    Pros

    It was a decent job. The pay could have been better for what you do.

    Cons

    Lower pay than industry standards because you are a contractor and they skim a LOT off of the top.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your technicians what they are worth, stop being greedy. Supervisors need to have a more personal relationship with your contractors
