    I have been working at SoftLayer

    Pros

    The web hosting industry is very stable right now. Softlayer struggles to hire people, there is good job security. Free snacks and soda. There is alot of work todo, you will not be bored.

    They pay a premium for php developers (even if you do not have a lot of experience). Negotiate hard going in... as there is no annual pay raise policy.

    Cons

    You are given a phone and expected to be available 24x7. Lots of people talk about having two jobs... office hours and 'outside' office hours. Management threaten to fire employees if things go wrong.... 'put names in a hat and pick one out... that person is going to be fired'.

    There seems to be a two different 'classes' of employees.... if you are in the 'club' you will get stock options and pay raises, very few people are in the club. The company is very top heavy, not much room for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating your employees like adults will result in a better working environment. Trust your employees, they are doing a great job given the difficult circumstances.
