I have been working at EarthLink full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They have a great idea - good solid concepts, and the market timing is correct for what they said they were trying to become.

Cons

Management changes every month - constant reorgainzations. But none of them acknowledge or fix the problem. The CEO has one vision, but operations is doing their own thing and undermining that vision. Verbally they all saw the same thing - but the actions tell a different story, and its like Mr. Huff refuses to see the problem is within his own house - and he's being stabbed in the back.

Advice to Management

Quit trying to build a concensus - have some guts and commit to a direction. If people are on board and contributing to the change (and in some cases actively working against it) then remove them - even when they are VP's and above!

    I worked at EarthLink full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The senior management made an effort to be transparent and compensated people well during the continued attrition of the dial-up access business.

    Cons

    Continued layoffs in the consumer division.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond middle management. Make an effort to hear from the ranks.
