    I worked at Telephone & Data Systems full-time


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

    Cons 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)
