    Pros

    They pay market rates. Freedom to try to do things but no real direction. For example, the systems in place were created 5 years or so ago with no real improvements.

    Cons

    Management has no clue on how to lead and manage a company. 10+ executives have been hired/fired in the last year. CEO is volatile in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a professional management team. Learn how to lead people at 'CEO School' or just resign. Masking yourself as a REIT makes no sense. You are like a Rackspace. Tell the world who you really are so com parables can be done.

    Pros

    Great company with a good benefit package. With full health and dental, plus PTO all start at the start of hire.

    Cons

    Horrible nanagament starting with the western regional manager of security. Has poor management and communciation skills. Gives too much favoritism, lacks judgement on good workers and needs to improve on employee relations skills.

    Supervisor, likes to start problems, brings moral down, is too protected by the Corperate Director of CoreSite Security. He's no nothing, expect allot, and needs to understand his workers.

    Let alone the rediculous favortism that goes on, at the 900 Alameda, where certain people get the weekends off, certain easy post, where no hard done, but they get recognized for doing excellent work, while they cover themselves, by making everyone else look bad.

    Can't even take day off, they are always denied. What's the point of having benefit, if you can't even use it? That's the senior management for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the Western Regional Security Manager, just becuase he was a cop and sold insurance, doesn't qualify him to be a Manager, wih his poor skills of communication and taking care of employees, and lack of leadership. Find someone with great experience in Security in a corperate level, and knows how to operate and work with their employees, to find a common goal.

    As for the supervisor not much worst thant the regional manager, but never hire your friends to work at your company or work for you. As you can see since that individual took that position, all he started was division, conflict within other employees and departments, and poor morale. In which it could lead to potential liababilty. And that all reflects on you the Corperate Security Director!
