Great Place to start a career after college.
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Quincy, MAMay 21, 2017
If you like structure this is the place for you. Good place to start a career after college. Starting pay is low, but you get a bonus here and there for sales growth. Work day is 8-5pm lunch at 12pm. Everyone leaves at 5pm the parking lot is difficult to navigate, someone got hit by a car a few years ago. Its great if you are young and looking for a job.
Pros
Gym, Granite Day
Cons
Lousy cafe

Great as a first job out of school
Cost Analysis and Savings Analyst (Current Employee) –  Quincy, MAMay 17, 2017
Great if you're a kid out of college. Looks good on a resume but management is a clique. Only room to move up is when someone quits. And that is usually due to the management structure and lack of pay. Temps are making more money than people who have been there for years and word is spreading. Many unhappy employees.
Pros
Relaxed atmosphere
Cons

Corporate Fraternity
Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 16, 2017
You must be able to fit into the culture, which is filled with lies and no morals. If you are not willing to snake out your co worker from time to time in order to get ahead, you will not be able to fit in and will be outcasted and eventually led out the door. If you have any type of integrity, you will not succeed at this job.
Pros
Benefits, Workout at lunch.
Cons
Too many to type

Room for growth but you are entirely on your own
Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 3, 2017
Typical day at work: Show up to a completely quiet office and you sit at a cubicle and call/email prospects all day

What I learned: is that if you want to be successful its entirely up to you and that you can't rely on management to go out of their way to help you

Management: laissez faire style, where the manager even said that he would love it if he could go his day with just taking care of his own work and not helping his employees

Workplace Culture: at corporate HQ its phenomenal and everyone seemed very into work. At the location I was at the was very new it was extremely dull

Hardest Part of the Job: Was sifting through the leads that were for the most part useless. A lot of them were duplicates already being worked by another rep. There are still thousand of good clientele but for the most part you will have to find them on your own.

Most Enjoyable Part of the Job: The freedom. I mean freedom in the sense that you make your own schedule while you are there. You aren't required to make a certain amount of calls/emails but only to produce sales. So if you are new to cold calling this isn't the place for you, but if you know what you are doing you have a great chance at flourishing in this environment
Pros
Great health benefits and room for growth
Cons
laissez faire management style

Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Quincy, MAApril 26, 2017
Great company culture, fun environment to be around. If you hustle you will be successful. Their sales force database needs work, many reps attack the same accounts. Billing platform is difficult to keep customers sometimes because of mistakes.
Pros
Excitement and motivating
Cons
Job Security, high turn over

Premier Account Analyst (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAApril 25, 2017
Working at Granite has its ups and downs. The management is not always professional due to the managers change every two months. Not all managers have training so many do not know how to be a successful manager. The environment is very stressful and fast place. One will have to learn telecommunication industry fast.

Great place to work, low pay
Billing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Quincy, MAMarch 27, 2017
I love working at Granite and would love to stay if the compensation was on par. The culture is great and the people are wonderful. They offer a lot of great benefits outside of work, but I do not make enough to cover the high cost of living in the area
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
low salaries, no raises

Data Provisioner (Current Employee) –  Quincy, MAMarch 11, 2017
The culture here is to come in to work when it snows. Even if it snows 2 feet. And the T shuts down.

Even though this could be a work at home job, you will have to come in when it is dangerous to be on the roads in the middle of a blizzard.

Its a sales driven company, and they favor the Sales Team.
Pros
Good starter job
Cons
Not work from home

Not the best
Temporary Assignment (Current Employee) –  Quincy, MAMarch 9, 2017
Granite Telecommunications is a company that revolves around selling POTS lines and has no interest in advancing their technology or their company culture. It is quite honestly miserable there and not many employees love it either.

Good Start
Premier account analyst (Current Employee) –  Quincy, MAMarch 6, 2017
This job helps students that recently graduated college, get on their feet. the starting hourly pay really is higher then most jobs available to newly graduates. That really helps with the high living experiences in Boston.
Pros
bouns, commission
Cons
don't get too many holidays off; have to work during horrible weather, need to provide your cell number to customers.

Not a good place to work
Provisioning Analyst (Former Employee) –  Quincy, MAFebruary 27, 2017
Standard entry level data entry job. A good place to get your feet wet and move up. The management was horrible to say the least, and everything operated on a strict 8-5 schedule. If you were 1 minute last, then 1 minute came out of your vacation time.

A grind
Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, RIFebruary 25, 2017
terrible place to work but they pay well. very restrictive and focused on the mighty dollar. a churn and burn culture. Mangement is old school authoritatian, there is scrutiny on making dials and quotas. industry may be drying up as their bread and butter is plain old telephone lines which no businesses are using that much.

Poor office culture, lack of mobility in the company
Cost and Savings Analyst (Current Employee) –  Quincy, MAFebruary 16, 2017
The reality of this company is that unless you want to sell your soul this place lacks any sort of clout. Nobody wants to be there, you are severely underpaid and everything is catered to the sales department.

Revolving Door for Millennials & former Telecom Stars
Industry Specialist (Former Employee) –  Quincy, MAJanuary 13, 2017
The 'average salary' was boasted as 250 thousand dollars to candidates. Though this was accurate it was also misleading. Those who were lucy enough to start at the ground floor had established flagship clients like Walmart, CVS etc. These folks made over one million per year. When factoring in the 15-20 original employees and their seven figure incomes the average would have come out to roughly 200-250K per year. This was used to fuel the belief that more calls = more money. The average tenure there was just around six months which coincided with the amount of time it took someone to realize they would most likely just keep making the 45k base. This would be a decent first job out of college. Aside from that it would be a disappointment.
Pros
Philanthropy Involvement
Cons
Income, Culture, Future

Great start, team not so great
Network Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  North Quincy, MADecember 18, 2016
While the team is rather accepting, the majority of team members in the department I worked in weren't very knowledgeable. Their backgrounds were not tech related, and social worklife was a big aspect for them. I was making great progress, but someone must have felt threatened by my advancement because I was denied acceptance as a permanent employee, even though I was given no warnings of issues and I had a great knowledge base and showed enthusiasm and determination.
Pros
work life and home life very seperate
Cons
teammates
