    Pros

    Great start up work environment. Bright, collaborative employees. Great management team.

    Cons

    Start up environment for sure- if start up chaos isn't your thing this isn't your place

    Advice to Management

    Launch another company and lets do it again.

    I worked at Clearwire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great management team, good vision. Learned a lot and was able to have impact on the decisions in my area. I really enjoyed working with the people in my department, we got along great and I could count on them to help out during especially busy times.

    Cons

    Difficult to gain a work life balance. Decisions were made quickly and action needed to be taken just as quickly. This meant spending a lot of time at work, not much of a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Although I had lots of latitude to manage my own area, not every one had this same latitude. If management is confident in the people they hire, they should allow them the opportunity to manage their areas as they see fit. I saw instances where other managers were micromanaged and this led to job satisfaction and turnover.

    Pros

    Great culture filled with smart people who were committed to the business and each other.

    Acquired by Sprint, and very few people remained w/the company.

    Pros

    Base pay plus bonuses from sales. No manager to look after you daily so that was definitely a plus

    Cons

    If you are not into sales this is not the job for you. There is a certain number of sales you are expected to make per week.

    Advice to Management

    Management was ok. Sometimes expected way to much under certain circumstances. Should not expect sales to go door to door

    Pros

    An opportunity to grow territory management skills from an entry level position while receiving a competitive salary.

    Cons

    The company was under constant threat of being bought out and the distribution model of using third parties to provide hardware to clients was a bit awkward.
