    Current Employee - Service Delivery in Burlington, MA

    I have been working at EarthLink full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solvent company, convenient work location

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Out sourcing jobs to India and the Philippines. Less than a 2% merit raise. The only increase in 6 years. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Bonus plans rolled out to Salary employees and Supervisors and nothing for the worker Bees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of communication, no feedback welcomed by the employees doing a specific job to see how a different way could be better from employees handling that job every day. Morale is at it's lowest level. Same old bull, no change as we were promised. We are reminded that we are lucky to be employed. What happened to Happy workers are Productive workers. You get what you give!!

    Current Employee - Sales in Burlington, MA

    I have been working at EarthLink full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, time off, medical. If your resume is riddled with used car sales positions, this is the place to get your feet wet in high-tech.

    Cons

    Sales force has the highest turn-over rate in the industry. Most sales people do not last 6 months and sigh a relief when they are laid off.

    As a sales person you will have zero support from management. You are a one man team (lead generation, call lists, marketing, engineering, pricing, etc). You will be micromanaged to death yet required to set two new appointments while attending two new appointments each day. Managers will actually draw up your schedule for a 12 hour day, 5 days a week.

    Compound this with numerous management meetings, useless technology training put out by "marketing" personnel, and you will fail like most who have been through these doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moral is at an all time low, micro-management is not the solution. Fix the numerous issues that plague the day to day operations of the sales person (botched installs, confusing pricing, useless Sales Engineers), provide actual real useful tools and education to the sales people.
