I worked at Clearwire

Pros

Good compensation and benefits packages at the time I was there.

Cons

Support and promotion skewed to those who blindly follow corp leadership. "Are you on the bus?" I saw some really bright people crushed for having independent thought that would have lead to better success for the company. Loopholes and games to move out anyone who supported those who weren't "on the bus". Craig McCaw would have lost a lot of sleep if he'd realized how his Cellular One culture was folded, spindled and mutilated by Clearwire leadership. A lot of his old employees went to Clearwire seeking a similar experience and were sorely disappointed! I am a consummate team player and I was really amazed at the priorities and people that were canonized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look beyond those who kiss up. There are at least 3 sides to every situation.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, rapidly growingly industry. Must be prepared to work extensively outside the office environment. Management could so well to recognize talent as well as communicate better with all employees.

    Cons

    There is too much uncertainty whether the certain employees will have their jobs the next day. Improving communication about top managements' plans would help a whole lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would urge the management to keep each employee up to date on company activities and significant changes in the business plan.
