    Used to be fun, but with long hours and average pay. Change in management and a reorg made the environment dry.

    I worked at Hostway

    Pros

    Heavy LAMP (linux, apache, mysql, python). Smart coworkers you can learn from. Interesting projects against cutting edge technologies and methodologies.

    Cons

    You were expected to put in pretty long hours because the timelines were so tight. There were a few performance bonuses, but for the most part compensation was average at best. Change in leadership left us unsure of the direction of the company and cause many people to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a technology company, software developers should be valued. Hold on to those that keep the train on the rails. Raise compensation levels.

    Pros

    A solid employer offering a friendly work environment in a fast-paced, often stressful business sector. Offers extensive training and hands on experience knowledge in the broad field of internetwork technology. The right place to learn the ropes to offering stellar customer service.

    Cons

    Entry level employee salary may not be competitive to similarly ranked companies in the field. No substantial salary raise for long tenure in management positions over time.

    A good company to start your career at. Unfortunately, there's not much room for development.
