    I worked at Clearwire full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    Overall Great Culture and Awesome People. The perks weren't bad, and there is a really attitude of "We are all in this together" that really makes you feel like part of a family.

    Cons

    No certainty about the future and once Sprint came in moral dropped and the layoffs began. Overall a hard environment to work in.


  7. Good till the last drop!

    I worked at Clearwire full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Lots of growth in the business in a relatively short period of time. Fast paced business with many market launches and product and technology changes.

    due to variety of funding cycles, there was a lot of stop/start activity over the years.

    I have been working at Clearwire full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A company in constant flux. There were decent opportunities if you can ride the ups and downs long enough. Clearwire hired some really great people with good energy and attitudes.

    Cons

    The company was never fully funded and there were lots of lay offs. Most projects required you to work on a shoe string budget. Many people worked very long hours with little recognition. This company has since been purchased by Sprint and undergoing considerable staff changes.
