    "Extremely Busy"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Challenging work, overall a good company with a good product,

    Cons

    You will be extremely busy working very long hours, working nights and weekends to keep up with job demands. Almost everyone is overworked with no additional bandwidth to help their co-workers with even small items. Sales is under the gun to produce with insufficient time allowed for new sales people to firmly establish their pipeline of business. AboveNet business model is more closely aligned to support independent sales agents than internal sales since most new hires will not make it much past their first year due to long sales cycles. It is no secret AboveNet is up for sale and as such it operates understaffed in order to maximize quarterly profits.

    Advice to Management

    Hire or contract additional resources and support. Spend more time finding the best people to work at AboveNet and give them sufficient time and resources to do their job in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Benefits were great. Salary was good and the company was growing.

    Direction of the IT team was a little vague due to some changes in upper management. It seems like they've got everything settled in now. To many meetings

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and allow for time to do work and less meetings.
