    Pros

    Excellent Training
    Collaborative team
    Competitive technologies
    Great compensation programs

    Cons

    Health care is very expensive
    Hosting Operations and NOC need to work at being more proficient with the newer technologies
    Product management and Deve Engineering needs more resources
    Needs to be more efficient at bringing products to market.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the hosting Operations team. Diversify them across different regions, too!
    We need architects and Sr. engineers who understand Agile and Devops methodologies in IT.
    Revisit the health insurance plan.
    Bring back the stock purchase plan

    Pros

    Hands on experience with every imaginable piece of networking equipment you can think of. You get to interwork with all departments to progress your career

    Cons

    High work load, and high employee turnaround. I am hoping the new management can settle things down a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers, they face the customers and know what they want more than anything.

    Pros

    Opportunity for both professional growth and career advancement is available and often times, promotions from within are the norm. The employees make the difference, as there are quite a few that are some of the most dedicated and brightest people I've ever worked with. Strong product offering, with a future proofing that customers appreciate.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be difficult to maintain at times, but you get out what you put in.

    Pros

    Interesting mix of technology products and services, future-oriented markets (cloud, etc) good recent acquisitions, strong financial position and trend, nice teammates, good work-life balance (you can work as hard as you want but there seems to be less pressure than at some other big companies and small companies)

    Cons

    Offices spread around the country and world, IT and HR requests can be slow sometimes, some of the offices are much nicer than the others (for example the parent company HQ is nicer than the NYC sales office), some people don't work as hard as at startups

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it, continue to enhance culture and office environments

    Pros

    Company is moving in the right direction with OpenStack Powered and Hosting services. All services are related to each other and provides clients with flexibility and options to optimize current infrastructure as well as put in place an architecture to grow.

    Cons

    Any company in growth mode can be challenging to get to top line revenue. Especially after acquisition of integrating systems, processes, employees, etc.

    Business Units, Engineering, and Ops don't work closely enough together

    Focus on fewer products/initiatives

    Pros

    Overall a very good company to work for with many great employees. They continue to open new data centers and sell a competitive cloud product

    Cons

    Small company that competes with the largest providers in the market. They do a great job but dont own their network.

    Pros

    Solid and comprehensive products that fit early stage to mid-growth organizations.
    Smart people and great group of co-workers. Great Team.
    Great place to learn the industry.

    Cons

    Poor compensation. There is a three month look back on commissions that reduces your pay out.
    Trouble retaining sales professionals.
    Needs formal training for managers.

    Advice to Management

    Management training for new managers and managers that are new to Internap. I would recommend removing the three month look back on commissions.
