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

    Pros

    Working at Windstream will introduce you to many different technologies. The network consists of multi-vendor core and really touches on your base understanding of networking skills and troubleshooting.Complex issues will definitely test your knowledge and validate your certification whether it be CCNA, CCNP, CCNA Security, JNCIA etc
    Decent pay w/ decent benefits. Coworkers are fun to work with. Call Center Perks ummm frequent potlucks if that's your thing.The main pro is that you can level up at an ISP 2-3x as fast versus working for an enterprise or vendor

    Cons

    Where to start. The company is mainly split into 3 departments. Data, Voice and transport. The data department in the Maitland call center is ran by 2 Managers and one team lead. Windstream is the wild west of the telecomm industry and this will make sense if you choose to work here. The CEO's are accountants which plays a big part into some of the recent developments and decisions.Data is ran like a call center with heavy micro managing. Policies are ever changing and yearly raises are not very enticing. Understaffed and overworked is a common theme. I could go on but have a game plan if you choose to work here. You are a number 1st and a person 2nd which is usually how most call centers work. Training is non existent. A new hire may be given 4-5 weeks training and then thrown into the wolves as far being able to troubleshoot everything. Trial by fire works for some but not for everyone. Afterwards there is no continued training development when it comes to complex technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees skill set and give the appropriate access level. The good cop, bad cop management style causes confusion and doesn't scale well over time. If employees believe that management has their best interests at heart then employees will go the extra mile.Professionalism is not attained through a job title and this is something that needs to be worked on by "BOTH" managers.If management is held accountable by NPS Surveys and the trend continues this reflects on your poor management style. Cracking jokes and having outbursts on the floor when a mistake is made resonates poorly with the workforce.
