No Job Security / No advancement opportunities
Multiple Positions (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – January 4, 2018
TDS Pay and Benefits are excellent. Outside of that, it is a cutthroat environment and, unless you live in Madison, WI, there are close to zero opportunities afforded to non-Madison residents to advance. Management is very egotistical and treated our office and everyone in it as if we were "beneath" them.
There is little job security. Despite making it 8 years with company, I had to worry almost every day if I would have a job the next. They create a culture of condescension and, essentially, "rule" by fear (using job security as a weapon). Any advancement that is provided is usually decided upon by favoritism. In fact, most recognition within the company is done by favoritism, as well. The culture is very much similar to a Fraternity / Sorority, at times.No matter how professional they attempt to appear, the company is highly unprofessional.
Pretty much everything else
