    Pros

    There used to be very smart people who worked and played hard. Because the ship ran so lean you had to wear many hats and that meant opportunities to learn new things

    Cons

    no respect for employees, no rewards either, management squeezed every last drop of blood from your stones. Dinosaur telco execs are not interested in innovation.

    Advice to Management

    You should really pay your employees better and figure out the meaning of work life balance. stop taking them for granted


  2. It was a good run, before the merge.

    Pros

    Speak was a great place to work -- I have made good friends and invaluable networking contacts. Best thing WAS the excellent caliber of technical folks in the rank and file.

    Cons

    (OK, I *always* hated the cheap-o IKEA desks lined up in bullpen style. I almost turned down the job for that alone.)

    However, the real problem is the merge. In 2010 a three-way merge took place between Covad, Megapath, and Speakeasy. Speakeasy no longer exists, in spirit or any other way. The engineering team is gutted and has been since late summer. Customer service is no longer a priority. I don't know what is, exactly, other than giant bonuses for the C-level teams.

    I don't believe they're hiring right now but the bottom line is, if you have a chance to work there? PASS.

    Advice to Management

    If you're ever in a merge again? Don't do it this way.
