Generally good, but beware of HR

IT Manager (Current Employee)
Middleton, WI (US)

I have been working at Telephone & Data Systems full-time

ProsMost of the people there are good people that want to see you grow. The culture, the old culture that is hanging on, is a good one. People work hard and you are rewarded for your work.

ConsBeware of HR. They have proven themselves to be untrustworthy and have a very bad reputation in the organization, but they'll never learn about it because they don't want to know and the rule by fear. Personally, I've tested my HR rep by giving them confidential information and my leader knew what I'd told them within 2 days - twice this has happened. They also like to make threats and accusations that are completely unfounded - I've seen this happen to a number of people - usually to anyone that questions them or pushes back. They decide they don't like them and they start working to get them out. I'm not sure if it they are even aware. . . . Be particularly careful of the ER and CP.

Advice to Senior ManagementSurvey the employees and try to see what they actually think of HR and leardership. The employee survey isn't doing it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Sr. Management talks a good game on changing culture but is ineffective in implementing or influencing the employees.
