Disapproves of CEO

I worked at AboveNet full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Stable work environment
Great Pay
Great processes and Policies

Cons

A little bit heavy on the politics and favoritism
Not a lot of room to move up.
Sold to Zayo out of nowhere and this could wipe out what made AboveNet a great and successful company

Advice to Management

Any management (or anyone) that was transitioned to Zayo should work to preserve the AboveNet way.
