Disorganization is the name of this organization
Analyst (Former Employee) – Matthews, NC – January 12, 2016
Windstream by far is one of the worst jobs I have ever had. In terms of management, processes and organization
Windstream is the worst. Management, from the upper to the lower management have no clue how to on how to get things done on a day to day basis. There is no structure or processes or procedures in place to carry out tasks. Training is non existent and you are thrown to the wolves and expected to competently do your job well.
The compensation is not competitive and you are expected to work long hours without complaint. The morale at the company is beyond low. If you ask 10 employees how they feel about working there, you will get the same answer.......it's a job and I get a check. Job security is non existent, as there is a re-org about every 3 months. The health benefits are horrible. You better not get sick or it will cost you.
The co-workers are the only thing that keeps most of the employees there. There are some really nice people there to work with and they do well in a team environment. There are some good managers there, but they get overshadowed by the red tape of upper management. You will not advance unless you are liked by upper management. It has nothing to do with your skills or competency.
All in all, I would not recommend Windstream as a place to work.
Great co-workers, team environment
Low Morale, low compensation, too many re-orgs, no support from upper management
