    I worked at Telephone & Data Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good, family friendly environment with decent job stability, but...

    Cons

    ...company is run as a family owned entity (one family controls the equity), not a lot of room for advancement, and it's not a very efficiently run company (lots of process, procedure, politics, and overlap of duties)

    I worked at Telephone & Data Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance; good people (staff) and decent culture; great benefits and fair and competitive pay

    Cons

    Senior leadership inconsistent and frequently out of touch; company is trying very hard to reinvent itself in this competitive area and has a ways to go - if you can make it through the ride to the other side it could be rewarding; often challenging to bring in new ideas and technologies - frequently mired in the day to day.
