Pros

Employees generally embrace visions & objectives of transformational network technology.

Cons

Whole question of retail vs. wholesale strategy should have been ironed in Dec 08 at time of JV with Intel, Google, Comcastse, TWC and Brighthouse.

Advice to Management

Figure out how to transition Clear retail customers to Sprint, Comcast, TWC or other acquirer's customer base, because no advertising + no smartphones = big loss to VZW and ATT now that 4G networks are becoming widespread. And move to LTE asap.

    Pros

    Clearwire is on the cusp of moving to the next level of organizational development, including implementation of ITIL concepts of Problem, Change and Incident management, as well as process documentation and consilidation. The company embodies all that's great about the energy and flexibility of a DOT com, while understanding that it needs to formalize its processes if it is to scale to the next leve.

    Cons

    There are still many areas resisting the move to a more mature business model, including Development access to production systems and a bit of a fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants firefight approach to problem solving.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the pressure to move to an ITIL or similar framework, which will change the paradigm over time and allow the scalable growth that will ensure financial returns based on more efficient and consistent operations.
