    I worked at XO Communications (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting work that I did.

    Cons

    Lousy health insurance plan. Management only cares about acheiving quartely EBITDA results. CEO is only a caretaker and has no real go to market strategy or if she does is incapable of motivating people to acheive it. No real opportunities to grow professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell the network to a stronger carrier and close the door on the company.

    Pros

    - Flexible schedules
    - Telework policy (if your boss allows you to take advantage of it)
    - Not alot of bureaucracy to get things done
    - Love the people I work with; have made some great friends

    Cons

    - Terrible Benefits
    - Use it or Lose It Vacation Time
    - Good luck getting a raise
    - Even better luck trying to get a promotion
    - The constant threat of losing your job at yearly (and sometimes biyearly) layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Invest in the front line managers
    - Stop laying off people to get your yearly bonus
    - Train managers; you have some totally inept people managing others and ruining their careers

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
