    I have been working at Equinix full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is not shy about helping employees succeed both personally and professionally. Everyone works together well toward a collective goal for the company's success, and recognition abounds. There are social events multiple times a month to get employees together and management does a great job keeping everyone informed of key developments on a regular basis.

    Cons

    While work-life balance can be a challenge, the work is always interesting and challenging - sometimes you just need to put in the extra time to get it all done with high quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive environment and attitude that makes people inspired and excited to come to work each day.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable people, great benefits, flexible schedule .

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be to fast paced. All the snacks,deserts, bagel Friday's and pizza will help add unwanted weight. There is always something to complain about at any job but it is what you make of it.

    I have been working at Equinix

    Pros

    The culture is great, very collaborative and open. It still has a start up feel even though we are about 3K employees. There are many employees within the company who have been here over 10 years.

    Cons

    they have a robust benefits package but I think it falls short of some other high tech companies in the valley.
