    Pros

    Walking out the door on my last day was the best thing that I can think of.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts for NOC personnel (guess that could be a pro too though). No training program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the vice president in charge of the NOC (if you haven't already).

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

    Pros

    - Salary was not bad. That's all.

    Cons

    - My manager was a former engineer and became a manager just to be able to advance in his career. He had no people management skills, arrogant and rude. He asked me to do stuff that normally a manager would not ask a senior engineer to do (taking screenshots, documentation, all kind of stupid things). Sometimes, he was acting like I was not even there when I was trying to have a conversation. Basically, he was trying to make me quit so that his manager looks bad because originally his manager hired me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of managers that DO NOT KNOW HOW TO MANAGE people.

    Its a Name, but thats it.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Herndon, VA
    Current Employee - Engineer in Herndon, VA

    I have been working at Network Solutions

    Pros

    Its a name. And if whoever your interviewing with hasn't already interviewed 20 people from there, it's a good name to have on your resume, because unless you've worked there, you thinks its a good place to work. I was able to move up quite rapidly.... to a point. The benifits are indded excellent. And if you work in the Belleville office, HR is great.

    Cons

    Lets see. 3 CEOs in 2 years should tell you something? I've worked there for 3 years and not once seen a bonus. The pay is not competitive in the VA area. They trick you into things that arent the best for you. Your expected to work overtime for no extra pay, and when you don't, hear things like "Your just not doing enough." or "We want you to dedicate more time here." Management reminds me of a baby looking at shiney objects, unable to keep focus on one thing for more than a month, and then moving on to the next. Its all about making money quick... not growing the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics. Great ideas don't come from the top, they come from the bottom. Stop chasing shiney objects. Make your employees happy, encourage them to be creative, motivate them, and the rest will follow.

    Pros

    Fast paced and interesting work.

    Cons

    They are moving their jobs to Argentina so not a good long term outlook. I worked on an e-commerce team of 10 developers which has been decimated down to 2. Management has no respect for the workforce. Middle managers are clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics. You bought a great e-commerce brand in Monstercommerce and have just flushed it away.

    Former Employee - Engineer in Herndon, VA

    I worked at Network Solutions

    Pros

    There aren't many good reasons to work for this company. But here are a few:

    1. You need a job
    2. Management keeps employees involved in the loop with what's going on.
    3. Responsive & friendly HR department

    Cons

    There really aren't too many reasons why you'd want to work for this company, and its reflected in the company's high turnover rate. A few managers tend to micro-manage & are territorial. One IT manager had very little understanding of technology in general. Office politics is alive and well here. Here's a quick list of the cons:

    1. People with egos
    2. Limited salary / job growth
    3. Managers lacking in both IT skills or knowledge.
    4. Managers who like to micro-manage.
    5. High turnover rate
    6. Low salaries
    7. Business is losing customers to competitors
    8. Low employee morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Lower the prices you charge. You're losing customers
    2. Increase wages. You're losing valuable talent
