    I worked at United Online full-time

    Pros

    (Nothing nice to say about the company in its current state.)

    Cons

    My mother always said that if you can't say something nice, don't say anything. So I won't say anything further about the current organization.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't know what you're doing, at least hire smart people to compensate. If you don't care, at least pretend to, or leave.

    I worked at United Online (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a good company at one time, offering dial up internet access at 1/2 the price of AOL.

    Cons

    It failed to keep up with the times and re-invest in new technologies, choosing instead to manage a diminishing revenue stream.

    Advice to Management

    There is no growth prospects for any of the current businesses, too much competition.
