    Great company culture initially then went south

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsYou have knowledgeable resources like network support staff, nds/se, and product managers. The sales teams are friendly and willing to help.

    ConsCompany culture took a downward turn and the "pillars" that held together before started crumbling, specifically, employee opinions and feedback.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds to take a look at impacts to the entire org, region, etc in the long run before making any decisions for "attractive" short term metrics.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good company that just needs better business process automation.

    Senior Account Executive (Former Employee)
    Framingham, MA

    ProsThe on-boarding was a good experience. Management was helpful at times. They have a pretty good reputation in the industry.

    ConsIf you are an SAE or an AE, you are on your own when it comes to list management and development. There is absolutely zero visibility into existing customers, so there is a lot of unnecessary prospecting into untouchable existing customers. Commission structure is antiquated at best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe forward thinkers and stop trying to emulate the incumbents.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsBenefits, lots of overtime if you want it.

    ConsOnce we went from McLeod to Paetec we did not receive any raises, and the bonuses that were promised never materialized.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good to bad

    (Former Employee)
    Rochester, NY

    ProsYour ideas and opinions mattered. You felt that you were part of a team. When the company was young they were more generous with perks, such as free lunches, tuition reimbursement, 401k matching, generous bonuses and office parties.

    ConsThe bigger the company got, all these benefits just went away. There was a long period with a freeze on raises, 4 years. When they announced that there would be no raises once again in 2011, everyone started looking for new jobs. Management quickly changed their minds and started to give raises again. While the raises were being taken care of, it was announced that the company was getting acquired. Naturally, many positions have been eliminated with the acquistion and I'm sure their not done yet.
