    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Had high pay ranges for people that had been there a long time. The people that stayed after the merger with Sprint were the best of the best.

    Cons

    Lack of management through the executive level. We needed more focused leadership on moving the company forward, instead of just waiting to be sold. Extremely high turn over for executives and VP level.

    Pros

    easy job during school, will get you an idea of what a sales job is like.

    Cons

    horrible management, spotty service which they'll blame on you if you don't perform well. My supervisor had me write reasons why I wasn't succeeding, and most of it was the fact that they are not gonna be able to compete with comcast or other services, which suck lackluster features. We were forced to sell clear in the computer area of best buy, where not many people were walking around. When I tried to be pro-active and walk around the store like the comcast guys I was told I wasn't allowed by my supervisor and best buy manager. If you so as happen to finally get someone to come near your kiosk they might be super excited, but land in a area which isn't serviced. So how can they blame their reps all the time? Sometimes the numbers are a indication of the companies shortcomings not mine.

    Advice to Management

    who cares

    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.
