    I worked at Clearwire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Goals were set for you to attain. There is more time spent in the field helping prepare your resellers to be successful. Good pay for the limited time employed.

    Cons

    You could be a part of the numbers game. Once a market is set up they let all of the local people they hired go. Longer than normal work hours.

    Pros

    Exciting work environment, lots of changes. You could make the job your own. You were only limited by your own creativity. The people were great and it was fun going to work.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. There were a couple of times when large groups of employees were outsourced and the communication surrounding the reasons for this were not communicated very well.

    Advice to Management

    You will gain more respect from employees if you tell them both the good news and the bad news. Don't make them guess.

    Pros

    Overall Great Culture and Awesome People. The perks weren't bad, and there is a really attitude of "We are all in this together" that really makes you feel like part of a family.

    Cons

    No certainty about the future and once Sprint came in moral dropped and the layoffs began. Overall a hard environment to work in.

    Pros

    Great group of people involved in the day-to-day operations at the end of Clearwire's line. Benefits were great (as I have discovered from being elsewhere after the CW departure) and flexibility to work from home was a HUGE plus.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was a constant struggle...especially being 3 hours ahead of corporate's time zone. Compensation was fair, and growth was definitely present in certain business sectors.

    Pros

    Lots of growth in the business in a relatively short period of time. Fast paced business with many market launches and product and technology changes.

    Cons

    due to variety of funding cycles, there was a lot of stop/start activity over the years.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the culture of the company and the opportunities for advancement from within. Wonderful benefits and above par compensation for the area.

    Cons

    Transparency was lacking in many regards which led to many insecure employees and often lowered morale. The re-badging of employees to an outsource company was covert and resulted in the loss of respect by many employees. Process changes weren't very well planned and implemented resulting in confusion across departments.

    Advice to Management

    The lack of transparency with employees and customers hindered efforts to grow the company in such a way that made it impossible to avoid acquisition by Sprint.
