Pros

Upper level management more involved, easy to talk to

Mid level management can be over bearing in some aspects, and not involved in other aspects where needed. Needs a better balance

    Decent employer but their lack of technology leads to no job security

    I have been working at Windstream full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits packages
    Decent wages
    Large company lends to mobility

    Cons

    Very disorganized. They are bolstering what numbers they have to try to be acquired. Hopefully Verizon or AT&T will purchase them so their customers will get some desperately needed network upgrades. We are forced selling over-priced, sub par products with unrealistic goals. Marketing sets quotas but are not accountable to their own financial quotas. The system is very corrupted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont let marketing set quotas. All of the weight rests on the heads of the sales groups and marketing should be a part of the financial expectations, not setting them. Sales becomes the scapegoat of marketing under this system.

    I have been working at Windstream full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    none. Everyone in my department is looking for work elsewhere.

    Cons

    Since Windstream acquired my company, they have put me in a position that has nothing to do with my background and training (Network Engineer). They have me doing budgeting and finance work, but refuse to give me the proper training (or any training) to do my new job, They are only concerned with immediate profits and dividends, they are not concerned with having a stable network and happy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your technical engineers. When they are all dissatisfied, your business is not sustainable.
