    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at XO Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The "sink or swim" training creates a camaraderie with the other team members who have been through the process.
    The company does provide paid national holidays.

    Cons

    There is internal strife between departments, which creates an us versus them mentality.
    Employees are judged on a full gamut of miniscule details. The under performing employees are given the easier assignments and the top performing employees are rewarded with the most difficult assignments. The metrics, which each employee is required to maintain, does not change. This micro management is then carried over to the yearly review and, if the wage freeze has been lifted, applied to your raise.

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the micro management and stop creating a culture that hinders the growth of your employees.

    I worked at XO Communications (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting work that I did.

    Cons

    Lousy health insurance plan. Management only cares about acheiving quartely EBITDA results. CEO is only a caretaker and has no real go to market strategy or if she does is incapable of motivating people to acheive it. No real opportunities to grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    sell the network to a stronger carrier and close the door on the company.
