    Poorly managed projects with no guidance and a lot of "it's not my job" being thrown around.

    Pros

    I think the people at a company are what make a company work and work well. I would say overall, you have a lot of nice people hard working people at this company. The pay is above average and the new space recently moved into is beautiful and state of the art.

    Cons

    The challenges of this company is there is a lot of finger pointing going on with no accountability. I think many of the managers are not in the correct positions or are not given enough information to make their employees productive and efficient. I feel like the CEO is far too much into the 'Rah Rah' let's go out there and rock it mentality and not sure they really know what they are doing. This should go highly noticed to the board of directors with the recent turnover in the last 6 months of almost the entire SLT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would put this more to the board of directors. Get a CEO and SLT team in there that holds some accountability for the misses on the many projects that were failed on in the last year. Put people in a position to succeed, not to falter because of lack of guidance, consistency or people in positions far beyond their skill set.

    Hiring the competition doesn't solve the underlying issues!

    Pros

    Generally good people, good benefits, and a modest concern for the welfare of each employee, actually trying to come up with positive things to say is difficult.

    Cons

    - Executive team listens to the wrong people
    - Data centers are mostly refurbished/retrofitted buildings that should not be a data center in first place
    - Executive team is some of the most arrogant people I have had the opportunity to associate with
    - Unwritten policy to hire competitors, to include their most recent hire from Equinix to fill the COO position. A strategy to compensate for the lack of ability on the Executive Team to include the CEO
    - This idea that a company with 12 data centers can compete with a company like Equinix which has 90. It is part of the arrogance of the executive team.
    - Overall client portfolio does not produce the majority of the revenue, once the few larger deals term out this churn will make it difficult for the sales team to replace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None they wouldn't listen anyway...
