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

I have been working at Windstream full-time (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.

    Mid management are all yes men/woman. No real leadership. Concerns and ideas aren't taken seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the front lines. Tell People when they aren't doing a good job. Tell people if they are management material or not, and if so put them on a career path.
