Evil, unprofessional environment with childish management.

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

Pros

A paycheck until you get laid off (there are layoffs every year).

Cons

It's been a few years but this was one of the most horrible environments I've worked in. Most management was in their positions due to relationships and not skills. It was immensely political with any advancement based on who you know.

I believe the rot comes from the top. There is no direction and there hasn't been for years.The dial business is dying, resale of broadband is a small business, wireless is tiny and the other businesses such as FTD and Classmates are based elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of Goldston. He's horrible. You know he's got no clue when when he gives a speech to employees he's always relating stories from the late 90s at early NetZero.

    Pros

    Nice people and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Will the company be around in a year or two. Location is Seattle is another issue with pending construction of the tunnel commuting will be almost impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible and forward thinking in your decisions. Have an open mind to new ideas and pay attention to the industry in a more thoughtful way.
