    I worked at EarthLink full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good sales training that is valuable.

    Cons

    Management is weak. They consistently miss their own fake forecasts and then whip the salesforce.
    When you protest this - they get upset and fire you.

    Used car salesmen have more integrity.

    They lie about the forecasts.

    The best and brightest do not last more than 6 months. Period, end of story.

    They keep firing the majority of the salesforce in the NorthEast. 35 people in 16 months? Avoid it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep buying shares, Rolla! You will be very wealthy when you sell the company is 16 months.
