    I worked at AboveNet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable work environment
    Great Pay
    Great processes and Policies

    Cons

    A little bit heavy on the politics and favoritism
    Not a lot of room to move up.
    Sold to Zayo out of nowhere and this could wipe out what made AboveNet a great and successful company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any management (or anyone) that was transitioned to Zayo should work to preserve the AboveNet way.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Cons

    Erratic schedule. (nights --> days --> nights --> weekends
    Claims to promote from within. In 6 years, this has not happened in the Oak Brook office...
