Apart from the corporate funding issues and corporate maturity (vs rapid growth/startup mentality) it's good.

Pros

Lots of opportunity. Lots of growth.

Cons

Lack of funding, lack of maturity. We have a building but not necessarily a foundation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down the rapid growth, look at being far more efficient with better quality. I understand the need for rapid growth but not the lack of efficiency (particularly in IT)

    Pros

    The pay is good
    Benefits are good
    Incentive plans are good if you can hit them

    Cons

    No respect from employees
    No respect from managers
    Do not work with educational schedules
    No advancement incentives
    Incentives are unobtainable
    Effective orientation
    Managers do not listen to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work on listen to employees, also compensation plan for telesales representatives need to be reevaluated. The floating incentive program to meet monthly sales quotas is very ineffective because you will always have half your employee not making monthly quota and half of them being compensated. This is not motivating at all and the turn-over rate in your organization will continue to climb to higher rates and will cause your organization to continually to lose money.

    Great place to work, although in a pause mode while waiting for next round of expansion funding

    Pros

    Pros:
    Great technology
    Great spectrum advantage
    Strong leadership team
    Fun telco environment with high speed growth

    Cons

    Company strategy is temporarily held up, waiting for next funding opportunity.
    Promotion opportunities aren't as plentiful as you might think- the general slowing in other telcos in the Seattle area has led to a swamp of well qualified, sometimes over qualified, folks to come to Clearwire.
