Pros: Highly knowledgeable and experienced staff
Cons: culture, reduction/ removal of flex work time (work/life balance), compensation, little or no recognition, little or no career pathing
XO is a challenging place to work. The employees are overworked and compensation is less than satisfactory in most cases. The Management could use some on-going "Management training" (culture building, empowering employees, conflict resolution, motivating teams & career building) separate from the mandatory HR training that is provided regarding state and federal laws and XO's responsibility to uphold them.
XO has many knowledgable employees who work very hard to help XO succeed. The hardest part of working at XO is the fact the culture and the upper management teams need an overhaul. Due to the amount and complexity of the strategic initiatives the company puts out, the employees are often under a lot of stress and very rarely is there an appropriate level of recognition, empowerment or work/life balance.
