    Pros

    The base pay is great with standard benifits. Expanding product portfolio quickly to adjust to newer market. A very large retail footprint. The agent channel is very robust and fruitful.

    Cons

    Commishion Structure is very complex, targets are unrealistic, to much consolidation in the product business units. Executive Turnover is high causing great uncertanty within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align the salesforce and eliminate internal competition and adopt an new compensation model that is inline with company goals of growing revenue.

    Former Employee - Premier - Sales Team in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at EarthLink full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    EathLink's name as a dial up provider. Some brand recognition. It's probably a great 1st place for someone just out of high school or college.

    They have a huge HR Department.

    Cons

    Read the other posts. A very disgruntle workforce with low morale. The strategic direction from top does not align with the resources and skill set of the employees. They are trying to play in space where they don't belong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the Board of Directors: Press the reset button or get acquired.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
