I worked at EarthLink full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The senior management made an effort to be transparent and compensated people well during the continued attrition of the dial-up access business.

Cons

Continued layoffs in the consumer division.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look beyond middle management. Make an effort to hear from the ranks.

    Pros

    They have a great idea - good solid concepts, and the market timing is correct for what they said they were trying to become.

    Cons

    Management changes every month - constant reorgainzations. But none of them acknowledge or fix the problem. The CEO has one vision, but operations is doing their own thing and undermining that vision. Verbally they all saw the same thing - but the actions tell a different story, and its like Mr. Huff refuses to see the problem is within his own house - and he's being stabbed in the back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to build a concensus - have some guts and commit to a direction. If people are on board and contributing to the change (and in some cases actively working against it) then remove them - even when they are VP's and above!

    Pros

    Comp is OK. Benefits are nice but cost too much.

    Cons

    No Plan, no organization, no tools, no direction.
