    Pros

    Company is under new leadership, ownership and hiring new executives that believe in growing the company and sharing a common vision of being a leading company in the hosting space and a top employer. Under new leadership the company now values it's employees and understands that they are important assets. This past year with new CEO, Bob Boles, there has been more direction, transparency and employee recognition. Company also has a lot of flexibility, great work life balance, and excellent benefits plans.

    Cons

    As with any company undergoing change and growth, one con is that change takes time. It's a work in progress and can't happen overnight so expectations need to be realistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue recognizing your employees and communicating constantly. Share a common goal and move forward, don't look behind.

    Pros

    The people - most I've interacted with are smart, fun, and dedicated; growth potential of a company who has realized there have been some mistakes and are willing to make changes to make it better; ability to learn new things everyday from others in the company; new challenges to keep it interesting.

    Cons

    Company is still playing catch up in some areas but there has been significant progress; internal culture and communication needs to be rebuilt but there are projects in the works to help with this and there has been great improvement over the last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on building the culture of the organization and communication between departments. That will go a long way in employee morale. Continue to increase sharing of company strategy and goals so every employee feels connected to the mission.

    Pros

    Hostway is changing. They hired bunch of people all over North America. The company is focused more on cloud and managed servers now and that seems like the smart thing to do. New employees and some of us that have been with the company longer feel like we are a part of changing the entire company. New management wants to hear from employees and creates opportunities for us to contribute. Come to work and feel like I am a part of building something

    Cons

    New employees try to change things too quickly and want a perfect company that doesn't exist and older employees resist inevitable changes.
    Sometimes a lack of vision and culture makes it harder for everyone to work together towards a goal.
    More communication between the offices needed.
    Strong leaders but not enough of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making changes and either hire more leaders to come into the company or hire from within. Some of the smartest, most passionate people I know are from Hostway.
