    Pros

    The company instituted a great work to life balance and provided opportunities to improve on work skills while on the job or at home on a computer.

    Cons

    The company had difficult spending issues which prevented them from remaining a solo company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely on the managed service contract with Ericsson. Create your own identity again.

    Pros

    Exciting work environment, lots of changes. You could make the job your own. You were only limited by your own creativity. The people were great and it was fun going to work.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. There were a couple of times when large groups of employees were outsourced and the communication surrounding the reasons for this were not communicated very well.

    Advice to Management

    You will gain more respect from employees if you tell them both the good news and the bad news. Don't make them guess.

    Pros

    Great group of people involved in the day-to-day operations at the end of Clearwire's line. Benefits were great (as I have discovered from being elsewhere after the CW departure) and flexibility to work from home was a HUGE plus.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was a constant struggle...especially being 3 hours ahead of corporate's time zone. Compensation was fair, and growth was definitely present in certain business sectors.
