The company gives ample time to volunteer for a few causes in the area which is nice. They claim to be a diverse company which is nice.
Departments do not like to communicate with each other thinking that giving any information will give up some sort of power or importance
While most positions in the company are diverse, you can tell that certain departments are "boys clubs".
It's easier to get a promotion if you are close with the hiring manager. Otherwise, it is almost impossible to get promoted.
Overall compensation for your work
Recently the company has increased wages to be fairly competitive. However, a decent raise or bonus is hard to come by.
Office / Work Environment
Not sure if this is a positive or a negative but it does take a lot to be let go. Even if that person is a detriment to the department, has made numerous mistakes, does not show up on time and has caused a rift between employees, management is hesitant to fire employees.
The balance is pretty good. Most departments that have an on-call have a rotation so there are opportunities to get away from the office.
The company image is as good as any other telecommunications company currently.
The company has been known to make unwise purchases to expand the bottom line at the expense of their employees. For instance, they purchased a number of markets that then had to be heavily invested in order to bring up to company standards. Afterwards, when those markets failed to produce a profit and even ended up costing a lot of money, they laid off almost 10% of their workforce, most of which had been with the company for years.
Inclusive / Diverse
Most managers already have an idea of who they want for a position before they even post the job, especially for internal candidates.
What I like about the company
They do offer free cable and internet service to local employees if they are within the service area.
