    I worked at o1 Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Choose your own title (for some positions). Some of the employees who work there are pretty good to work with. For the life of me, I can't figure out why the good one's stick around.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, unrealistic deadlines, uncompensated overtime for non-exempt employees. I was (significantly) making less than 20/hr as an Engineer. Industry standard for same job was 50 - 65 / hr.

    Raises were more like insults rather than pay increases (like 25 cents an hour after a pay increase freeze of 4 years!)

    Lots of broken promises. I've known folks who were offered better jobs elsewhere promised that their next review *would* be good, and they'd get 10% - 15% pay increase, only to have fire them right before review time.

    Advice to Management

    None, really. The company is fulfilling its purpose wonderfully... that is to enrich the coffers of the top three or four people there. Their business practices work towards that goal.

    Pros

    You keep up with today's technology and you get to meet some really neat people.

    There are some really weird hours but you have to realize that is nature of business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your workers happy and they will go out of their way to get things done.

    Pros

    If you like to be part of a clique and gossip, you would really like to work here.

    Cons

    Too numerous to list. Just don't even apply to this company.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so greedy.
