    I worked at Clearwire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture. The place is lean with bright enthusiastic people. It's fast pace, benefits are good such as bonuses, and stock options.

    Cons

    Work life balance may be difficult as with most start-ups. Personal growth is hard because there are not many positions opened.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out ways to help individuals grow instead of losing them because they are stuck in the same level/position for 5+ years.
