    I have been working at Boingo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Contrary to so many recently bad reviews I've seen here, our culture is extremely strong and that's coming from someone who works remotely and doesn't come into one of our main offices each day. I came here from a Fortune 100 Company and lived through countless layoffs so when we had one in December, it didn't take me my complete surprise. As a company, we were extremely overstaffed in certain sectors and needed to eliminate departments that were not part of our long term growth. Those who were affected have definitely done their part to come on sites like this and vent their frustrations. However, the company I have come over to work for has been nothing but supportive and encouraging new ideas for growth and opportunity. I would 100% recommend Boingo to a friend for their next job opportunity if it was the right fit.

    Cons

    Honestly, the only downside I have felt in the past year is just not being as connected to HQ as I'd like from a travel standpoint. Once travel is back to normal (as I write this, we are locked down due to COVID), I would like it if the company allowed all the Field employees to join 1-2 All Hands in person a year to have more of a connection to the office.

    Advice to Management

    Continue pushing forward. The weekly updates we are doing as a company during this time, led by our CEO, have been very helpful. They have helped both from a professional and personal level keeping up with the business and our goals/initiatives and wins.
