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

Pros

Stellar health benefits, emphasis on fitness.

Cons

Management has no vision for the future of the company. They are constantly chasing the next thing they hope will make the upper tier rich, while forcing the worker bees to work 24/7. Since the organization functions in a constant state of disarray, any claims of work/life balance are a joke (and probably written by HR in response to the real reviews which are negative). In my time there we were mandated to be on call and working on nights, weekends and even Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Between the constant lay-offs of middle management, plus many departures you can expect to have a new boss every few months. There are 0 plans for development or career growth. In fact many employees don't even have job descriptions and their roles are constantly being changed.

The other claims about the boys clubs clique are 100% true. You won't move up at Bandwidth because one of the senior managers will hire a friend or old frat brother to do a job they are not qualified for, instead of developing existing staff.

Advice to Management

Clean house, get back to your roots.
