I’ve been a top performer at Windstream for a very long time. Serial elite trip winner. 10+ years in enterprise sales. I have seriously seen about 75 sales reps rotate in and then out the door 1 to 2 years later. My fire has been extinguished. I have no excitement anymore to work here. We are in chapter 11 and the micromanagement is insane. We are stuck with whoever the latest manager is who will rotate out in 3 years like the rest do. I don’t believe the grass is any greener at att, Verizon, or Comcast but I am here to tell you I have killed it and I am this unhappy. I may be different than most of you, I’m making up to 300k but looking for a career to feel good about even if it means less money. Life is too short to stress out counting dollars. Any of us could die in some random event tomorrow and guess what? We will be replaced in 2 weeks and forgotten in 2 months by coworkers. I need something that makes a difference. We aren’t saving babies with SDWAN guys. Telecom is so saturated with competition and infested with back wash it’s insane.
300k in LR? You should take a pay cut, isn’t windstream fucked financially?
