    Pros

    If you only need a job for 6 months, the salary and benefits are OK and they hire lots of people when they launch a new market.

    Cons

    When Clearwire launched their Austin market for CLEAR mobile internet, they hired around 100 field sales reps and 13 Business to Business Account Execs. They made everyone "Exempt" so they can push you to work 50-60 hours per week and not pay overtime.

    The Business Sales Manager resigned in 2 1/2 months. The General Manager was terminated at 3 months.

    When I gladly handed my resignation after 5 months, there were only about 3 B2B reps and only 30 field reps.... most quit because of the long hours without overtime compensation.

    Initial Sales goals were reasonable and obtainable. The quota's triple after 6 months... not obtainable and I believe this is intentional to reduce the sales force post launch.

    CLEAR over-hires to launch a new market to get maximum exposure, knowing they will scale back the work force in 6 months to 30% of the original launch hires. BEWARE
