    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.
