    I worked at Windstream full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lower and middle management generally cares about the people

    Cons

    Senior management lacks emotional intelligence when it comes to their employees. Upper management is willing to sacrifice good people and reward people who do things like skip over their direct leadership to try to make a name for themselves. Salaried employees don't get raises, we were told that there were out of band compensation increases but when you ask how you qualify for one no one seems to know. They will tell you that they review everyone's, pay every 36 months. But a 3% raise every 3 years doesn't even keep up with the national inflation rate over that same period.
