Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Pasadena, CA
Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Pasadena, CA
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The bonus structure is generous
The work-life balance is more geared to "life" than "work"
Pasadena is a great place to work
Earthlink is full of nice and for the most part intelligent people generous with their time

Cons

Very little new product development
Most of the projects are to maintain or downscale products, or in some cases, to decommission them.
Management is gun shy about trying anything new
Management has no idea what to do with the company. They say they do, but after you see the decisions they make and then hear their rationale for making those decisions, it's so apparent they're been paralyzed into inaction. It's as though their motto is "Better to do nothing and be wrong than do something and look bad."

Advice to Management

Pay yourself as much as you can you'll never find a company that'll pay you as much as you make contributing as little as you do

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexability and compensation are above industry standard.

    Cons

    Where should I begin?? ELNK was a great place to work years ago but with the quarterly downsizing, incompetent leadership in some organization this place morale is at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    Start over and get competent leaders in the appropriate roles.


  2. "Lack of leadership in the management team!"

    Current Employee - NOC Technician in Rochester, NY
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    pay is OK, I would expect more for what they expect of me.

    Cons

    Lack of technical skills of the leadership and front end teams. There is no potential growth for any of the level 1 technicians. I haven't seen a raise in 3 years. it takes an act of god to get fired from here!

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend holding off on promoting people just because. People forget that we are a service company and sell technical services. We have many people in leadership that do not understand the technology.
