Integra Telecom's Can Do Culture
Achieved Senior Tech III (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 29, 2013
I worked for Integra Telecom for over thirteen years and they were always there for me. Allowed me the flexibility to go the distance in my field and, if I needed assistance, they could help, without being judgmental.
I worked alone for all that time at Integra Telecom and it really, did help, my self confidence. All the workers were top notch and professional. The management were, typically, hands off, so they didn't micromanage. This really help the moral, as we made our way through the recession. I always felt challenged and every day was different.
Maybe, in retrospect, I made what I did look too easy. Although, I worked alone, I rarely took vacation time and never complained (I had nothing to complain about). I was laid off due to budgetary constraints, so the higher management decided they could run my facility remotely, saving my salary and benefits. they ended up laying off between 50 to 80 employees and I was one of them...
isolated, with no backup (but that was the challenge)
