    I have been working at Terremark Worldwide

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Friendly people and environment to work in. No micro-managers. Work hours are very reasonable unlike some companies that will work you to death.

    Cons

    Too many incompetent and inept staff dragging down the overall performance of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Verizon Terremark likes to give away "free money" to the people who are clearly incompetent at their jobs. Fire them all and impose a strict interview process for future candidates, and there will be a major boost in customer's satisfaction/retention/infrastructure stability.

    Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Terremark Worldwide in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is extensive. You should be prepared to interview with engineers and technical team members before you get to the hiring manager for your position.
    Building rapport and being able to communicate are two extremely valuable skills to have when interviewing with Verizon Terremark.
    After you interview with multiple team members, you will meet with either the recruiter or the hiring manager for the position. If you are passed you'll know quickly from the HR recruiter. If you are on the way to being hired, you will receive an offer letter.
    My best advice after the interview is to stick to your salary request. If you're being reasonable for what the market offers in the DFW metroplex you will receive the offer, but you must present 2-3 valid reasons for your salary requirement. While I haven't had personal experience, I have been told that HR receives bonus compensation based on staying beneath a threshold for positions and new hires.

    Interview Questions
    • As simple as it may sound, when it was proposed it caught me off guard.
      I was asked to completely diagram a sample virtualization POD. Once I diagramed the environment I was then asked to trace a packet from the external internet into the environment, to a VM and back out.
      This proves that understanding the basics and being able to effectively communicate intricacies without skimping on detail is infinitely useful while at Verizon Terremark.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They will ask you for a salary history, I'll be blunt:
    I had 5 years of experience and my history was $32,000 - $42,000
    I justified my salary request of $60,000 based on the market and what the position paid at Dell and HP. I provided clear examples based on Robert Half Technology. I also took into account that the benefits are AMAZING.
    **Note** - I have come to understand that for this position the salaries vary greatly. I have team members on the legacy Verizon side that make nearly double what I do. The point though is that they manage contracts worth 10-20 millilon per year.
