    I worked at Speakeasy

    Pros

    There used to be very smart people who worked and played hard. Because the ship ran so lean you had to wear many hats and that meant opportunities to learn new things

    Cons

    no respect for employees, no rewards either, management squeezed every last drop of blood from your stones. Dinosaur telco execs are not interested in innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really pay your employees better and figure out the meaning of work life balance. stop taking them for granted

    I worked at Speakeasy

    Pros

    There was a strong support for good software development practices. They were good about letting you work from home, when you needed too.

    Cons

    There was very little employee career development. It was rare to get classes paid for, but they would buy books if you asked. There was too much reliance on offshore developers. There was too much reliance on offshore tech support for customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is great customer focus at Speakeasy (now Megapath). But, the focus on employee development and career advancement needs consideration too.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
