MisD.O. the D.O. ???
Customer Focus - we don't exist without customers. Respect - name one person who does not want to be respected. etc etc. It is common sense, yes, however too many people ignore common sense and look out only for themselves. The D.O. mirrors the values my parents instilled in me. And I am very proud to work for a company that has the values I missed in other companies I worked for.
@yourvoiceofreason - thanks for asking the question. And no - I don't feel brainwashed... unless my parents brainwashed me as ...
So your opinion would have to be based on the question if you believe values like 'ethics', 'customer focus', 'respect', 'diversity', 'pride', 'empowerment' are good values or not.
Some contributors in phonescoop clearly do not, e.g. there are people contributing company internal confidential information in phonescoop, which could endanger not only their own jobs, but also the well-being of the company..., including all other employees of that company. Since they signed the Business Code of Conduct in our case, in which they promise not to do that, they act unethically, they do not respect the company'...
How does stating that you're for these things distinguish you from every other corporation in the United States?
I am no spring chicken and there is not one company I worked for that was this serious about the values. You can be awesome at performing tasks, if you don't live up to the values, you might still look for another job.
Also notice, US Cellular is rated as one of the most ethical companies in the US.
You are confusing pay with values.
We are not discussing who gets paid what in this thread - there is another one going on about that topic.
But if you consider payroll a value, don't forget the benefits you are receiving. I never worked for another company that paid healthcare from day 1 on the job - including if people are part time - or pay into 401K from day 1, for full or part time employees. And that is only a tiny part of all the benefits we enjoy.
Nobody says everything is honey, but you can certainly make it all about things you don't like. I prefer looking at the positive side. First of all, I do have a job. I don't live above my means, so I can pay my bills, etc etc.
My health is fairly good, and my health insura...
The D.O. at USCC has great values in themselves, as stated by others. But if you are a USCC employee or ex-employee, do you feel like these values are ever misapplied by the company, in order to brainwash you to think a certain way, or management misapplying the application of the values, in order to get rid of who they dont like?
You have to be a USCC employee or ex-employee to really answer this, since it isnt so much about the values themselves, but how USCC uses these.
The reason I ask is that many companies have their core values, but many times bad management will misapply the application of these values in a particular situation, in efforts ...
To put it another way, when I describe why I love my job to others I tell them of this same thing you are asking about. At least in my experience the values and behaviors are followed and not just writing on a wall in the break room.
Not every manager is a bad one, but the company insists on an absurd level of rhetoric to create an enviornment where we are not encouraged to think for ourselves. The recent conversations around employee commission changes is a great example this.
