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

Pros

Laid back, lots of products, not a bad name as far as reliability, great ramp-up commission,

Cons

Not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility, no culture whatsoever, quotas are a bit high in my opinion, XO takes forever to install, customer support can be better

Advice to Management

Speed up installations, re-think quotas for reps, enhance customer support

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

    Pros

    Managers give you enough space to figure things out on your own. Ability to telecommute on occasion is also a perk. All the employees I dealt with were very hospitable and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Benefits are severely lacking. There are some politics involved with certain employees getting more of the benefit of the doubt than others. LAY-OFFS! When they weren't laying people off there was always a rumor or a threat of lay-offs. There is a pay increase freeze as well - no hope for a raise anytime soon

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the pay raise freeze - Reward employees for their hard work and not who they are

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for; employees were good to excellent. Engineering staff extremely supportive of sales people. Company hired me in 1998, 2003 and 2007. Benefits were above average.

    Cons

    In 1998 my sales manager was horrible; in 2003 my sales manager was excellent being supportive, helpful and in the office or reachable; last manager in 2007 through 2008 was never there for new sales people and split daily by 3 PM.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making mass hiring decisions only to turn around with six month laying 75% of the new hires off.
