    I worked at EarthLink

    Pros

    Core values of the original company are excellent and they strive to stay true to those. Treat employee's with respect and honesty. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Current leadership may be a bit short sighted as they look to realign the organization. Some excellent knowledge may be lost due to ledger sheets and straight head count cuts.

    I have been working at EarthLink full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with lots of technology. Great place to work if you are willing to work hard and enjoy learning new technologies. Senior technical people are very talented and good mentors.

    Cons

    HR policies are not that great. All time off is lumped together as PTO: Personal, Sick and Vacation. Communication is greatly lacking between senior management and the average worker. Implementation, onboarding and change control processes are horrible and need great improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your senior technical people before overspending valuable company money on overpriced technology and equipment. Develop better procedures and hire better middle managers.

    Cons

    horrible management style
    no advancement opportunities
    located in bushnell's basin
    purchased by a huge corporation
    management doesn't notice hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to learn how to manage employees without belittling them at every opportunity. They need to learn how to give structured feedback to employees. They need to figure out how to standardize on their different practices. Need to stop showing favoritism towards certain employees.

    I have been working at EarthLink

    Pros

    Laid back work environment, opportunity for growth, interesting work, flexible hours, very accessible senior management, bonus opportunities.

    Cons

    Occasionally you have to put in extra hours to meet deadlines, but its generally rare. On especially technical or complex projects there tends to be a lack of direction from the project managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
