    I worked at Clearwire full-time

    Pros

    There are so many brilliant talented people that are employed here. Creativity is buzzing on a daily basis and there seems to be a great "Can do" attitude in the air. Casual work environment with a focus on productivity and team building. I felt appreciated while there.

    Cons

    Trying to amp up too fast, speed of getting something done seemed more important than the quality it would bring.

    Advice to Management

    Management could have been better at thinking more about "How this will effect business" instead of being the first ones on the market to offer it.

    Pros

    The Culture at Clearwire was one of the best that I have experienced. I felt that the company loved to show how much they appreciated their employees. It felt like being a part of a family during my time there.

    Cons

    Some projects had a very aggressive schedule which required a lot of late nights and weekend work to stay on track with deployment dates.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. You can see the actual pride put into making the atmosphere a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Pay was pretty low and leadership was sketchy, however, there were a few really smart top tier leaders. There was a massive layoff in the Chicago office and we were able to see it coming. Started seeing the product subscription fall apart at the seems.
