Field Engineer (Current Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – April 11, 2017
Management needs help. Not very knowledgable on the job that they do. They lie to employees to get them into the door. they have unrealistic timelines. They downsized the company by half and expected fewer people to do the same amount of work.
Jr. Engineer (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 16, 2017
Management could of used some work my boss wasn't really a leader type more like micro manage when he had too. The hours we're really nice they still did 4 ten hours shifts. Work was alright very repetitive same thing different day.
people were nice, work became consistent over time
Computer Drafter (Current Employee) – Littleton, MA – August 24, 2016
Had to learn a new program specifically designed for Verizon. received jobs and had to have them completed within an hour of each work print. For ex. a 4 work print job should only take 4 hours to complete.
worked in a team environment while still working on projects by yourself.
co workers are very nice and very helpful.
only downside is there is little to no advancement and had to work some of the smaller holidays.
a typical cubic work, sit front of computer. Pace will get intense, thing will get boring and tedious sometime. It's entry level position can gain some experience, but sometimes thing not working very well.
Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – May 16, 2016
It is a good company to start with and get experience, its hard to move up at this company if you are administration, or haven't been here for a long period of time. Management is good if you stay on top of your work and follow direction well. Company is constantly transitioning in new directions with policies or guidelines to follow and rules are all over the place but it is a good company. Hard to explain until you have worked here.
Distribution Designer (Former Employee) – Springdale, OH – May 9, 2016
Typical day would be me getting jobs which were power poles that needed changed out and redesigned. Co-workers were great but management had no idea of how to train or control what went on in the office. On almost a daily basis they would change how something was done. Example one day putting the coordinates of the pole in question was OK then the next day it wasn't. They wanted the nearest address which in some cases could be mile or even miles away from pole. But they could never pick a standard to go by. All things are subject to change but UC just didn't seem like they knew what they were doing and what the customer really wanted. There where many other problems but it would take forever to type them all out. I'm glad I'm no longer there and wouldn't be surprised if they aren't there hear in awhile. But as always I'm grateful for the job and the things I learned. The job was just not for me.
Design and layout plans for AT&T to feed fiber to the homes in a given area, based on the DA in Micro station. I've learned new software, regulations and standards. The hardest part of my job is depending on fielding notes. Completing a project from beginning to approval.
