    I have been working at SoftLayer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great entry level opportunity, room to move up

    Cons

    If you are too good at your job, they will keep you where you are at, but if you are a little bit good, you can move up more easily - lower than average pay - management lies about pay and does not back fill positions, forcing everyone to work harder

    Advice to Management

    Let the sites with more volume have more workers.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SoftLayer (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Quick, applied got an interview the next week. The parent company of ibm has a hard to navigate site and calling them to accept the offer was answered by someone with a thick Indian accent which may make it hard to understand. After accepting I started a week later. There are 2 weeks of intensive training.
