    Pros

    It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Clearwire was under a lot of hardship - much of it their own creation. To get out of that situation, the company needed to take drastic measures. If you were in the right group, that situation could be really interesting. If you were in the wrong group, your time at the company could be short. Being under the gun, the company was willing to try new and different things. In some areas where senior management didn't have a ton of experience (ex. e-commerce) your ability to roam was pretty great. You didn't need to detail all the nitty-gritty...just share the results. As long as you delivered results, they left you alone to run the show.

    Cons

    Web technology infrastructure was archaic at best. No room to grow from a resume career standpoint once things started coming to an end. Golden handcuffs for a select few

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your severance packages.

    Pros

    I was able to travel to different locations helping clients figure out their wireless internet issues. I was able to make my own hours and end the day early if finished early or I had clients cancel house calls

    Cons

    Pay was not enough for me. And doing the job in the winter would have been terrible. Im glad I got out of there when I did.

  3. It was okay.

    Pros

    There is an intense environment at Clearwire focused on getting work done quickly and efficiently. If you're a type A personality that thrives working on your own with relatively little oversight you'll do well here.

    Cons

    Work life balance could be better. The emphasis is on getting your work done and not procrastinating but sometimes that's to the detriment of your home life.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employees
