    I worked at XO Communications full-time

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with, many long term employees, flexible, work from home hours, good pay, 401k

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs in recent years and now purchased by Verizon so many great employees were left go. Health Benefits were costly and not that great

    Advice to Management

    Not much since now purchased by Verizon.
