    I have been working at Airvana full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Airvana is a great place to work. I’ve been with the company for many years, cultivated great working relationships with most of the employees and formed friendships I’ll take with me after I leave. The work is challenging, the benefits are excellent and the salary is very fair. In recent years Airvana has gone out of their way to engage employees in creative ways that make coming to work a pleasure. I’ve honestly said many times, “Airvana will be the best job I’ll ever have”. The employees, the culture, it truly is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Equity. Don’t expect a huge stock payday. Airvana is a great job with a good pay check but don’t expect to retire on the stock options.

    Advice to Management

    Mean what you say. If you’re going to follow “industry trends”, then follow them. You’re not fooling anyone and no one has forgotten it. Also, excellent selection on the new CEO. Richard was a great find and I feel confident he's the right man for the job.

    Communication between upper management and employees.
